- Sir John Soane office drawings: the drawings of Sir John Soane and the office of Sir John Soane
- 8 December, 1807
Decr. 8th: 1807. There are two different hands, one uses pen, and the other pencil. The proposed Tyringham project had finished by 1801 at the latest, and the pen may be an addition done in 1807 for placement in a volume. The plan conforms to those seen in late 1800 and should be placed at that time
The drawing and pencil inscription is probably from that date, with pen additions added in 1807
- November to December 1800
This is the probable date for the actual drawing
In the Soane Office Day Book Malton and Adams are drawing perspectives of chapels and a section for a 'Sepulchral Grotto' respectively, but nothing is mentioned of a plan for Tyringham, which the others usually include
Possibly Malton, Charles, draughtsman

Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural, design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.
