How it works


Joseph NASH (1809-1878). The Mansions of England in the Olden Time. London: published by T. M’Lean, printed by Hullmandel or Hullmandel & Walton, 1839-1842. 4 volumes, large folio (21 ¼ x 14 ½ inches; 540 x 368mm). 4 tinted lithographed titled, 4 lithographed dedications, each with lithographed list of contents on the verso, 94 tinted lithographed plates only (of 100). (Lacking 6 plates from the second volume, spotting, occasionally heavy, light soiling, occasional small marginal tears). Original morocco-backed moire’d cloth, titled in gilt on the upper covers (disbound, damage to spines [see images], some soiling to covers).

A near-complete set of this famous pictorial survey of the great houses of England, most from the Elizabethan and Jacobean period. Nash's served as a sourcebook for architects but, as early as 1841,  this work was referenced before a parliamentary select committee as an element in the growing popular taste for visiting historic buildings.
