The Student's Instructor in Drawing and Working the Five Orders of Architecture
by Peter Nicholson



The Student's Instructor In Drawing And Working The Five Order's Of Architecture, by Peter Nicholson, the famous 18th and 19th century British architectural historian, theorist, educator and author. The Student's Instructor was first published in 1792 and in subsequent editions for more than half a century.

The Student's Instructor was the standard reference book for the student of architecture and architectural drawing as well as for the practical carpenter and builder. The Student's Instructor describes in text and finely engraved plates the five classic architectural design elements: Doric, Ionic, Corinthian (Grecian), Tuscan and Composite (Roman).

Reproduced in full color from the original in our personal collection, the Toolemera Press edition of The Student's Instructor preserves the intrinsic details of an early and classic book. The Toolemera Press edition includes the exceedingly rare J. Kelly, London catalog of architectural books.
