TitleBLORE'S PLANS FOR REBUILDING LAMBETH PALACE
Date1829
DescriptionTwo large albums containing plans, elevations, sections, and details by Edward Blore (1787-1879), architect, for the partial rebuilding of Lambeth Palace. Included are ground and first floor plans of the parts of the old palace demolished by Blore (MS. 3104, no. 3; MS. 3105, nos. 539, 541-2).
In both MS 3104 & MS 3105, there are several sets of numbering: the original numbers allocated in the lists at the front of the volumes and marked on most of the plans; and additional foliation included at a later date by the Library. These differences on some of the plans have been indicated by bracketed numbers, and the "folio" or "No." within those brackets indicates whether they're original numbers or later foliations.
AcquisitionGiven by the Revd. Edward William Blore in 1880.
