While looking for another book at the Architecture Library, I found this beautiful book of plates form 1847. I took some photographs, but found that a. my cell phone didn’t do a great job, and b. the New York Public Library did it much better than I ever could.
The book is Traite Theorique Et Pratique De L’Art De Beatir by Jean Rondelet. The book is about 12 x 24″ and absolutely beautiful.
