The Student's Instructor In Drawing And Working The Five Orders Of Architecture by Peter Nicholson 1815
The Student's Instructor In Drawing And Working The Five Order's Of Architecture, by Peter Nicholson, was published first in 1792, then continuously for more than half a century. Nicholson was the famous 18th and 19th century British architectural historian, theorist, educator and author. He is known for the update to Joseph Moxon's Mechanick Exercises, titled: The Mechanic's Companion.
The Student's Instructor describes in text and engraved copper plates the five classic architectural design elements: Doric, Ionic, Corinthian (Grecian), Tuscan and Composite (Roman). Nicholson's text was the standard reference book for the student of architecture and architectural drawing as well as for the practical carpenter and builder.
