- James Dallaway (1763-1834), antiquary and clergyman, was the author of many works on heraldry, architecture, and other subjects. His writings on architecture attempt to divide the Gothic style into periods and to produce lists of contemporary buildings in each style.
Bookplate: From ... the library of Lindsay Fleming Aldwick Grange Bognor Regis ... Sussex.
Bound in contemporary calf, rebacked.
Volume of extensive manuscript annotations to a printed copy of James Dallaway's Observations on English architecture, military, ecclesiastical, and civil, compared with similar buildings on the continent (London: J. Taylor, 1806). The notes, in pen and brown ink, are in Dallaway's hand throughout, and appear to have been compiled for use in a revised and enlarged edition, published as: A series of discourses upon architecture in England from the Norman æra to the close of the reign of Queen Elizabeth (London: J. Williams, 1833). The annotations are written on about 200 additional blank leaves of paper, tipped in, as well as on the margins of printed pages. The notes include many references to and excerpts from other published works, some of which were printed after the 1806 publication of Dallaway's original work. Annotations appear to have been added piecemeal; a small portion are dated, from as early as 1807 until as late as 1830.
