The Aviary.
E. Rooker Sculp.
[London, 1763.]
Copper engraving. Plate 292 x 427mm. 11½ x 16¾". Large margins. Time staining outside the platemark.
A plan of the Aviary in Kew Gardens, as designed by the Scottish architect Sir William Chambers (1723-1796).

He was appointed tutor in architecture to the future George III. From William Chamber's 1763 publication of the 'Plans, Elevations, Sections and Perspective Views of the Gardens and Buildings at Kew in Surrey'.
See Ref: 16627 for a perspective view of the Aviary and Flower Garden from the same publication.

Aquatint, printed in colours and hand finished. 395 x 505mm (5½ x 19¾"), with narrow margins.
A view of the 'third' Kew Palace, begun in 1802 by James Wyatt with much input from George III. It was much-ridiculed: in 1820 John Bew, in his 'The ambulator; or, The stranger's companion in a tour round London', wrote; 'This Angleo-Teutonic, castellated, gothized structure, (which has never been completed, and probably never will be,) must be considered as an abortive production, at once illustrative of bad taste and defective judgement'. The Prince Regent didn't like it and after the George III’s confinement at Windsor Queen Charlotte refused to live there. In 1828 it was demolished with the interiors used elsewhere: the main staircase was installed in Buckingham Palace.

Strand on the Green. [in pencil]
Strand on the Green. [in pencil] 'One of the quaintest and least spoilt places on the Thames is Strand-on-the-Green, below Kew Bridge on the Middlesex bank. The view from the interesting old houses is charming on account of the pretty eyot in the middle of the river. The inhabitants are chiefly watermen, but artists and writers have also lived in the very quaint houses. Zoffany, the painted, died at Strand-on-the-Green in 1810, and Joe Miller, the wit, lived there. The Maltster's building on the left-and important feature from an artistic point of view-was recently pulled down'.

View in the grounds of the fancifully 'Gothic' villa of Horace Walpole, a folly which he purchased in 1748 and rebuilt in stages to his own specifications, expanding the little property from five acres to forty-six over the years. Walpole built the Printing House in 1757. In September 1759 he wrote to the Earl of Strafford “…I have begun to build a new printing-house, that the old one may make room for the Gallery and Round Tower.” It was finished at the end of October when he wrote again to Strafford “My new printing-house is finished, in order to pull down the old one, and lay the foundations next summer of my round tower.” It was in use by the end of the following May. Although it possessed no Gothic features, it was probably the most important building as it was the headquarters of Walpole’s private press, “the Offinia Arbuteana or the Strawberry Hill Press.” The first book issued from the press was an edition of the Odes of Thomas Gray (1757), Walpole’s old schoolfriend. Amongst Walpole’s own works printed here were the Mysterious Mother (1768), a blank-verse drama, and the Essay on Modern Gardening (1785). A work particularly important for its documentary value was issued from the press in 1774. This was Walpole’s 'Description of the Villa of Mr Horace Walpole at Strawberry Hill near Twickenham, with an inventory of the furniture, pictures, curiosities etc'. The 'Description' was subsequently revised and reprinted in 1784, accompanied by engravings.

Robert Adam's unrealized plan for a bridge at Syon House. Plate from the Adam brothers' "Works in Architecture". At the time the work was published, Adam was presumably confident that the plan would go ahead, as his accompanying text ('the whole is new and is reckoned fanciful and picturesque') suggests that the bridge in fact already existed. Robert and his brother James Adam forever changed the face of British architecture by introducing innovative Classical design ideas. Together, they designed and built some of the most famous buildings in England, including Kenwood House, Keddlestone Manor, and Syon House. The brothers diversified by designing furniture to complement their beautiful interiors and by creating and publishing their 'Works' as a treatise on design, in three volumes beginning in 1773 and concluding with a posthumous volume of 1822.
