TAYLOR, Isaac, jun. (1759--1829)
Specimens of gothic ornaments selected from the parish church of Lavenham in Suffolk on forty plates.
London: published by I & J. Taylor, 1796.
[2] p., 40 pl. ; 29.2 cm. (4°)

The title is engraved (pl. [1]). Isaac Taylor, jun., who moved to Lavenham in 1786, was evidently the 'Artist' described in the letterpress 'Advertisement' as having made these sketches for his own amusement in about 1790. Later impressions such as that described in BAL lack this leaf. The view of Lavenham church on the title-plate is signed 'I.T. del. et sculp.' See BAL, Early printed books, no. 3251; ESTC t146673.
