Most of the plates in volume I comprise plans, elevations, sections and details of Whitehall Palace. The second volume comprises, for the most part, domestic buildings including the Queen's House at Greenwich and an extraordinary design for a palace on the Thames, at Richmond, with great colonnaded courts and an open circular feature. "The Designs of Inigo Jones was a significant feature in Burlington's campaign to establish a new standard of taste in England: the first, as it were, in a series of visual exemplars" (Millard). --abebooks website Translate
