Small 4to [text block 255 x 175mm], 27 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates, viii, [9] 10-106, [4]pp, half contemporary brown morocco over marbled paper covered boards, the sides and corners with gilt roll decoration, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, the spine with barely raised bands, prettily gilt decorated, lettered direct, the remaining compartments with gilt centres and corners, original endpapers retained but with new inner hinges, armorial bookplate on front pastedown and a couple of booksellers' catalogue entries tipped in; signature on front free endpaper. Corners and edges rubbed; some very occasional spotting and toning; a very good copy. [Archer 246.2] Curl's Oxford Dictionary of Architecture, 2nd edition, 2006, pp557-58: 'Rural Residences was far more influential than most commentators have suggested: it appears to have been a stimulent for designs by Schinkel and Persius, notably the Court Gardener's House and roman Bath complex at Potsdam (1829-37) and the Gothic Hunting Lodge at the park at Glienecke (1827-8). In fact, he helped to create the rational Greek style that was so ubiquitous in the period 1815-40, yet his importance has not received the recognition it deserves.Many designs in Loudon's Encyclopaedia (1833) appear to have originated with Papworth.'.

Staniland (Booksellers) was established in 1972. We occupy a small shop in the centre of a pretty market town in England's smallest county. We have two public rooms and stock antiquarian and modern books, mostly literature, philosophy, music, history, classics, architecture, applied arts, theology and topography. We have a good range of library sets in cloth and leather and, occasionally, fine bindings. We are members of the P.B.F.A., the largest booksellers' organisation in the U.K. The shop is usually open from 10.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m., Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; usually closed on Mondays and Tuesdays; appointments to view out of hours can almost always be made at a customer's convenience. Please telephone before setting out if you are travelling far as I cannot always get cover if attending an auction. We are always pleased to receive offers of books for sale.
