Notes:
Aquatints by J.C. Stadler; after Humphrey Repton.
Many of the plates have movable overlays (engraved) indicating changes recommended in landscape effects. These overlays mimic those found in Repton's Red books.
"Reprint of the edition of 1808 with the text completely reset."-- Abbey.
Date of publication from Abbey. Paper bears watermark dated 1822.
According to Abbey the plates are unaltered from the 1808 edition, except that the wear of the engraved surface is disguised by the heavier use of color. In this edition the frontispiece is also colored, which it was not in the 1808 edition, and the order of plates 14 and 15 are reversed.
"An inquiry into the changes in architecture, as it relates to palaces and houses in England ... with some remarks on the introduction of Indian architecture" (p. [13]-41) has separate title page.
