Drop-head title. Though this catalogue advertises George Smith's A collection of designs for household furniture (1808) as 'This Day ... published', its actual date of issue is probably somewhat nearer 1811, the date of the book with which it is bound. Volume stoatIV of Stuart & Revett's Antiquities of Athens (q.v.) is described as 'in Preparation', and subscribers' names are solicited. Taylor acquired the materials for vol. IV around 1809, and the work was eventually published in 1816.

Copy Notes Bound (2) after Brook Taylor's New principles of linear perspective, 4th edition, 1811 (q.v.).

Binding Original C19th grey paper boards, printed paper spine-label 'Brook Taylor's Perspective, New Edition, 14s.'
