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.
