The King's Arcadia : Inigo Jones and the Stuart court (catalogue of an exhibition organised by the Arts Council of Great Britain, held at the Banqueting House, Whitehall, London, 12 July-2 September 1973)
London, Arts Council of Great Britain, 1973
(23.5 cm), 232 pp., illustrations. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. - Exhibition celebrating the fourth centenary of Inigo Jones’s birth. The famous notebook kept by Jones during his Italian tour of 1613-1615 was exhibited, together with a selection of books from his library, including his copies of Palladio, Lomazzo, and Serlio; an essay is devoted to Jones’s annotations in his books. The drawings are rightly discussed in detail (nothing else survives of Jones’s stage works, and only seven of his forty-five recorded buildings still stand). ¶ Good copy.
