The designs of Inigo Jones, consisting of plans and elevations for publick and private buildings by Inigo Jones( Book )

45 editions published between 1727 and 1979 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kent notes that his illustrations of Jones’s work are based on original drawings by Jones and John Webb, then in the possession of Kent’s patron, the Earl of Burlington. Most of the plates in volume I comprise plans, elevations, sections and details of Whitehall Palace. The second volume comprises, for the most part, domestic buildings including the Queen’s House at Greenwich and an extraordinary design for a palace on the Thames, at Richmond, with great colonnaded courts and an open circular feature. "The Designs of Inigo Jones was a significant feature in Burlington’s campaign to establish a new standard of taste in England: the first, as it were, in a series of visual exemplars" (Millard). --abebooks website
