Langley, Batty, 1696–1751

The workman's golden rule for drawing and working the five orders in architecture : wherein their pedastals, columns, entablatures, imposts, and arches, are taken from the best examples of the ancients, and proportioned by equal parts, in a more concise, accurate, and easy manner, than has been done in any language : for the instruction of apprentices and journeymen, masons and bricklayers ... : and others who desire a just knowledge of the fundamental rule of that noble art / B. Langley.
