Des ordres de colõnes en l'architecture, et plusieurs a[utr]es dependances dicelle. Par A. Bosse.
[Paris, 172-?].
Engr. t.-pl., [24] pl. (1 fold.) ; 39.2 cm. (2°)

The collation and state of the plates are unaltered from that in the edition issued c. 1700 also in the Soane Museum (q.v.). However this copy probably represents an issue by Claude Jombert (fl. 1711?--c. 1735) between ca. 1722 and 1735 published contemporaneously with the copies of Bosse's Traité des manières de dessiner les ordres (q.v.) and Représentations géométrales (q.v.) with which it is bound.

Copy Notes Bound (2) with Bosse's Traité (q.v.) and Représentations géométrales (q.v.). The additional unnumbered plate of diagrams of conic sections without text is not present in this copy. The 'floating' plate of the Corinthian order that was originally issued in the Representations geometrales series is found here instead. With the title-plate to Représentations géométrales misbound before pl. A. Inscribed in ink on title-plate 45.

Binding C17th mottled calf, gilt-tooled spine, red morocco spine-label.

Reference Number 1741
