More L'Art Du Menuisier, Andre Roubo

The New York Public Library Digital Collection holds an ever growing array of fascinating, interesting, engrossing, enjoyable, etc. etc., stuff. Fortunately for us, the powers that be saw fit to add a selection of pages from Roubo. Purely out of personal greed, I downloaded the images and assembled them as a PDF. No security, no watermarks, just a pdf. For enjoyment.

Please remember that this material is owned by the NYPL and is presented here solely for the purposes of research, education, pleasure and a whole lot of drooling.

Once you have looked over the PDF, head over to the NYPL Digital Collection.

Book Excerpt

Des Principes De L'Architecture, De La Sculpture, De La Peinture, Ed Des Aures Arts Qui En Dependent. Andre Felibien. Second Edition c1690?

Courtesy of Google Books comes this excerpt of Felibie' influential work on Architecture and the making thereof. I've excerpted the secion on Architecture and excluded the other half of the book on sculpture and painting. The entire work runs over 800 pages. This excerpt is around 300, but still under 10mb in size when finished.

The excerpt is available here.
