Abstract:

Two anonymous sketch books, possibly by a Philadelphia architect, mostly depicting buildings, decorative details, and statues, but also including some sketches of people and a dog in Chartres, France. Among the details are doors, ironwork, balustrades, and friezes. Some of the buildings are identified as to location: Venice and Pisa, Italy; Belgium; London, England; and St. Augustine, Florida, are among the places represented. The sketches vary in detail; some of the building sketches are accompanied by rough floor plans. A railway station, a hotel, and several churches are among the buildings depicted. One sketch might be the U.S. Capitol. A drawing of the emblem of Philadelphias T Square Club, a society of architects, is also found. Laid into one volume is a list of suggestions for projects, from Croquis. Some of the items on the list are checked off.
