Household Furniture and Interior Decoration Executed from the Designs of Thomas Hope.

London John Tiranti: 1946. 2nd prtg.

Thomas Hope [1770-1831] studied architecture in Italy, Greece, Egypt and Asia Minor and later became a friend of the famous French Neoclassicist Charles Percier, whose influence shows strongly in Hope's own work. Hope's 1807 publication of his "Designs" crystallized the apexual moment (no, "apexual is not a real word) of the English Regency style, which had been bopping around for half a decade or so. This facsimile edition of the plates from Hope's work does not include his accompanying short text, which was more of a political polemic on reform than a discussion of furniture.

Hardcover. 10"x14.5", ii pages plus 60 b/w plates, dj light wear, a little soil jacket chipped and worn.
