Colen Campbell Vitruvius Britannicus.


Colen Campbell Volume 3    1-50

H.Hulsbergh engraver/ CAMPBELL, Colen Vitruvius Britannicus, or The British Architect, Containing the Plans, Elevations, and Sections of the Regular Buildings, both Public and Private in Great Britain. London.The Authors.1715 5 vols. Folio., 375 engraved plates, including many double-page. Vitruvius Britannicus is indispensable for the study of 17th and 18th-century architecture in England, and occupies its own place in architectural history as the book which established Palladian architecture as the approved style for Britain in the 18th century. Colen Campbell issued the first three volumes between 1715 and 1725. From the set of 375 large engraved illustrations, plans and sections of palaces, country houses, government offices and churches designed by architects from Inigo Jones onwards, with extensive coverage of Wren and Vanbrugh and of Campbell's own designs in the new English Palladian style. A compilation of British domestic architecture of the 17th and 18th century. The first volume, appearing in the same year as Leoni's Palladio 1716, was the earliest manifestation of the new Palladian revival - it was, in fact, Campbell who kindled the flames of Burlington's interest. It is not a treatise but  a catalogue of design, containing engravings of English buildings by Inigo Jones and Sir Christopher Wren, as well as Campbell himself and other prominent architects of the era. . The third volume (1725) has several grand layouts of gardens and parks, with straight allées, for courts and patterned parterres and radiating rides through wooded plantations, in a Baroque manner that was rapidly becoming old-fashioned. Buildings were shown in plan, section and elevation, but also some were in a bird's-eye perspective. The drawings and designs contained in the book were under way before Campbell was drawn into the speculative scheme. The success of the volumes was instrumental in popularising neo-Palladian Architecture in Great Britain and America during the 18th century. Large plate engravings being various sizes typically 28cm x 44.5
