Preliminary designs, design and record drawing for a funerary monument, c1762-63, unexecuted (6)
None of Adam's variant designs for the monument to Lady Elibank were executed at Aberlady Church, and instead one carved by Antonio Canova was installed.
Spirally fluted columns were used elsewhere by Adam, for example in the hall at Syon House.
Adam volume 19/35 is the most highly finished of all the drawings, and that the record drawing (Adam volume 19/34) corresponds to it exactly, shows that this design was the final version. The folds in the sheet of Adam volume 54/2/15 suggests that it was posted, possibly to the patron.
