Crude Hints towards an History of my House in Lincoln's Inn Fields, Paperback / softback Book

Crude Hints towards an History of my House in Lincoln's Inn Fields Paperback / softback

Edited by Helen Dorey

Description

In 1812 the architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837) wrote a strange and perplexing manuscript, Crude Hints towards an History of my House in Lincoln's Inn Fields, in which, in the guise of an Antiquary, he imagines his home as a future ruin, inspected by visitors speculating on its origins and function.

Never published in his lifetime, the manuscript has been meticulously transcribed and provided with an explanatory Introduction and footnotes by Helen Dorey, Deputy Director and Inspectress of Sir John Soane's Museum. Originally published as part of an exhibition catalogue sixteen years ago, this new edition has been extensively revised and updated.

The text is accompanied by nineteen illustrations, seventeen of them in full colour.
