Houston, University of St Thomas, 1968
(23 cm), 240 pp., 148 plates. Publisher’s printed wrappers. - A large exhibition (148 works) featuring original drawings by Boullée and Lequeu from the Cabinet des Estampes de la Bibliothèque Nationale, never before shown outside of Europe. “An invaluable tool, not the least for the illustrations of forty-five designs from the warped mind of Lequeu… His are the only sexy and perverted architectural designs I have ever seen… The catalogue, which concludes with a very useful bibliography, has delighted all” (from a review by John Harris, in Master Drawings, volume 7, 1969, pp.180-182). ¶ Good, unmarked copy.
