NORMAND, Charles Pierre Joseph (1765--1840)
Recueil varié de plans et de façades, motifs pour des maisons de ville et de campagne, des monumens et des établissemens publics et particuliers. ... Composé, gravé et publié par Ch.les Normand, ...
A Paris chez l'auteur, 1815.
[12] p., add. ornamental t.p., 53 [i.e. 63] pl. (10 bis pl.) ; 47.0 cm. (oblong 2°)

The imprint on the added ornamental title-page reads 'Paris, de l'imprimerie de Gillé, ... 1815.' possibly indicating a re-issue in the year of publication. Divided into 10 'combinaisons' of different themes - arcs de triomphe, salles de spectacles, plans ... adapter des vignes dans la decoration des façades and so forth - each with its own ornamental frontispiece. Normand's designs draw heavily on the work of J.N.L. Durand, with whom he worked closely as draughtsman and etcher. Further editions with new letterpress and reprints of the plates appeared in 1823 and 1831 (for the latter, see BAL Early printed books, no. 2319).
