Transverse Section, St. David's Cathedral, South Wales, UK, 1882, Original Plan. T. Taylor Scott.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Transverse Section through the Nave of the St. David's Cathedral in South Wales, United Kingdom. HAND-COLORED. T. Taylor Scott, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, June 2, 1882.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 12.25 by 8.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16 by 12 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
