The Stone Bridge Built along the River Lee at  Brocket Hall,
Engraved illustration in James Paine's 'Plans, elevations, and sections, of noblemen and gentlemen's houses, and also of stabling, bridges, public and private, temples, and other garden buildings; executed' ... By James Paine, ...  Illustrated by seventy-four large folio plates, in Volume 1 and similar in Volume II Published .1767 and 1783.  James Paine (1717–1789) was an English architect. A  Palladian, early in his career he was Clerk of Works at Nostell Priory,  working  on many  projects in the area including Heath House in . From the 1750s, he had his own practice,  designing  villas, usually consisting of a central building,  with a fine staircase, and two symmetrical wings. The most important house which he was involved with was Kedleston Hall, Derbyshire where he succeeded Matthew Brettingham from 1759 to 1760 and suggested the colonnaded hall, but he was himself displaced by Robert Adam, who altered his designs. At  the same time he designed the very grand stables at Chatsworth House . He was a favourite architect of the powerful Catholic families of the time. In the 1760s he was commissioned to rebuild Worksop Manor for the Duke of Norfolk as well as the new Thorndon Hall (1764–70) in Essex for Lord Petre and his house on Park Lane, London. From 1770 to 1776, he built New Wardour Castle in Wiltshire . CONDITION: All will have condition issues as Paine in his wisdom used paper so soft it is almost blotting paper. It suffers on some from surface abrasion, absorbs every stain known to man and crease from any moisture in the air causing mild rippling to the page.  Obviously a contributing factor to them being so rare  which with the initial private printing  was not condusive to making money .This one also suffers from an idiot who cut a chunk from the double folio page  £125
