London: for J. Taylor, 1823.

Quarto, 33 engraved plates (23 sepia aquatints), partly unopened in original grey boards, with 16 pp. publisher's catalogue.

An excellent unsophisticated copy of the second edition. Pocock (1779-1849) had an extensive and varied architectural practice in England, Ireland and Canada, where he built the Ball and Supper-Room for the Mansion in Montreal, c. 1820. This pattern book sets out designs for a dairy, a number of rustic cottages, as well as designs for more grander undertakings, such as castles and abbeys, in the Gothic style. The final essay explores "the Causes of the Dry Rot".

Clive Lucas has suggested that this pattern book could have been the inspiration behind the design for Hobartville, William Cox's residence in Richmond (Lucas, Australian Colonial Architecture).
