This classic portfolio uses elevations, floor plans, and other line drawings by Scotland's first great classical architect to document the state of the Scottish style in the 18th century. Unlike previous Vitruvius volumes, this work features plans for many smaller buildings and served as a model book for American builders and architects of the 19th century.
