SHAW, Henry (1800--1873)
The history and antiquities of the chapel at Luton Park. A seat of the most honourable the Marquess of Bute. By H. Shaw.
London: published ... by James Carpenter & Son, [1830].
[2], ii, 14 p., 20 pl. (incl. title-pl.) ; 57.8 cm. (1°)

The dedication to the Marquess of Bute is dated January 1st, 1830. Originally published in four parts between 1827 and 1830. The imprint name is taken from the title-plate publication line which is dated October 15, 1829. In 1830 the late medieval woodwork in the private chapel at Luton Hoo was moved from the seventeenth-century house to a new chapel built by Robert Smirke, junior. Shaw's detailed drawings provide the only complete visual record of the chapel, which was destroyed by fire in 1843. The Soane copy is one of twenty-five printed with the plates on India paper. BAL, Early printed books, no. 2988.
