Wightwick, George (1802-1872)
NOTES: This design is one of a number of drawings bound into five volumes entitled 'Architectural works of George Wightwick', made between 1832 and 1850. Wightwick instructed his articled pupils to make this detailed set of retrospective drawings to illustrate every building of importance he had designed. The drawings were intended to serve both as a record of Wightwick's completed buildings and as a method of conveying to his students the design process from initial working design to finished structure.

Parker, Charles (1799-1881)
NOTES: This print was first prepared to appear as plate LXXVII in Charles Parker. Villa rustica. Selected from buildings and scenes in the vicinity of Rome and Florence, vol. III (1841), but here was prepared for the second edition dated 1849 as plate LXVIII. The exteriors of this type of Italian rustic building, according to Parker, combined "picturesqueness and symmetry without disorder or monotony", but he modified "the interior to the wants and manners of this country" [i.e. the United Kingdom].
