(The 3ncient 3rchitecture of Öreat 5titain,

Accompanied with
HISTORICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE ILLUSTRATIONS.

By WILSON LOWRY and EDWARD BLORE.

The Selection of Subjects for this Work will be made from the choicest Architectural Remains in this Country, and will consist of such as may be deemed best adapted to illustrate the rise, progress, and revolutions of the various styles which distinguish its Ecclesiastical and Military Edifices. It is proposed to give Perspective Views, either of whole Buildings or of parts; and where further explanation appears necessary, to add Plans and Elevations. The most beautiful, or the peculiar Ornaments of each, will be executed separately on a larger Scale; and few Subjects will be introduced which will not be accompanied by Sections of the Mouldings from accurate Admeasurement,-a Feature of the Work which will, it is presumed, render it particularly useful to the Artist or Antiquarian, who may wish to study correctly the Spirit of our Ancient Architecture. As it is the principal Design of this Work to represent faithfully the Architecture of the various Structures selected for its Embellishment, no Liberty will be allowed to interfere with this Object, either for the sake of improving the Composition, or under any other Pretext; but sensible as the Editors are of the Advantage of combining picturesque effect with accurate Drawing, and of the Improvement of which a fine Building is susceptible by the Addition of its adjacent Landscape, no Opportunity will be lost of uniting the beauties of Architecture Landscape and rich Effect in the same Piece. The Work will be published in Numbers, and will commence with the principal Remains of Roman Architecture. The Historical Part will be drawn up with the strictest regard to Accuracy; and the Descriptive, with which it will be connected, will be the Result of a careful and minute Examination of the Objects introduced. The Engravings will be executed in the best Style, which the present improved State of the Art will admit, by Messrs. Lowry, Landseer, J. Roffe, G. Cooke, J. Le Keux, Lee, Porter, &c. after Original Drawings by Messrs. Blore, Nash, Turner, Warley, and other eminent Artists.

The subject may therefore be considered as including the whole tract of country between the rivers Plata, Paraguay, and Orellana, or the Amazons, and extending Eastward towards Peru, as far as the Portuguese have extended their settlements or their discoveries.”
