Description
This two-volume set is a comprehensive catalogue of the architectural drawings of Benjamin Henry Latrobe, a key figure in the birth of the architectural profession in the United States. All Latrobe's architectural projects are considered in detail—including the U.S. Capitol, the Bank of Pennsylvania, the Baltimore Cathedral, the Virginia State Penitentiary, the Stephen Decatur house—and each project is illustrated with his surviving drawings, including some reproduced in color. The volumes also analyze Latrobe's style of architectural drawing, trace the evolution of his technique, and place his graphic legacy in the contexts of his own architectural work and international currents at the end of the 18th century.

"A handsomely produced, exhaustively researched survey of Latrobe's work as illustrated by his surviving drawings. Scholars need not be concerned with Latrobe to find value here. Latrobe was a central figure in the effort to build the physical manifestations of a federal government, and his papers may be used for a myriad of issues. Latrobe's work provides important insights into the rise of architecture as a distinct profession.... Will be a standard reference for generations to come."—Maryland Historical Magazine
