A wonderful volume of fifteenth and sixteenth-century gothic decorative design. The  101 black and white engravings were drawn and etched by the visionary architect, designer, artist and critic Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin. Each section is preceded by special hand-coloured engraved title-pages.
The sections are as follows:
I. Designs for Gold and Silversmiths (drawn and etched by Pugin)
II. Designs for Iron and Brass Work Designs (drawn and etched by Pugin)
III. Gothic Furniture (designed and etched by Pugin)
IV. Details of Ancient Timber Roofs (Details of ancient timber houses of the 15th & 16th centuries drawn by Pugin, selected from those existing at Rouen, Caen, Beauvais, Gisors, Abbeville, Strasbourg, etc.)
Some of the plates have the imprint of the original publishers Ackermann & Co., London, The Strand - this volume was originally produced ca. 1835.
Condition: Very good indeed for its age. Expected fading and toning to the spine and bumping to the corners, otherwise very good. Inside very clean and bright, with usual discolouration to page edges but minimal foxing and no inscriptions. The hand-stitched binding is sound. A wonderful encyclopaedia of gothic architectural detail, decoration and design. A spectacular find that has been in the Room 606 collection for 20+ years.

Payment and Postage
Paypal is accepted and I do not add a surcharge to cover their fees. UK buyers only may also pay by cheque or postal order. If it's a cheque, please allow 7 to 10 days for it to clear. In exceptional circumstances it may be possible for overseas customers to pay by another means, such as bank transfer, by prior arrangement.
Non-payment
All non-paying bidders are, without exception, reported to eBay. This is not done out of anger, or for the sake of being vindictive, but because eBay charges retrospective fees calculated on the actual sale price of items and this money needs to be retrieved. Thank you for your understanding. Please refer to eBay's policy on non-payment for more information, including its ramifications for the bidder. If you have any doubts, please do ask before bidding.
Condition of items
Please note that, unless clearly stated otherwise, my listings are for vintage/antique objects and therefore, by definition, are not going to be in the same condition you would expect from a brand new item. Please be assured that I always endeavour to offer the most accurate description possible of the item's condition and take multiple illustrative photographs.
Vintage electrical items
Unless clearly stated otherwise in the description, vintage electrical items are sold in their original condition so should always be safety checked by a qualified electrician before use.
