PREFACE TO PART I.
Mr. Pugin. To Mr. G. B. Wollaston, who was lately my pupil,
I feel myself also called upon to tender thanks for his exertions,
and trust they may be the means of leading him on to the higher
walks of Architectural Study.
From my Subscribers and the Public I must crave the usual
indulgence, so much and so often needed by authors for their first
attempts in literary labours; and take a respectful leave ; hoping
soon again to address them in the two following portions of this
Volume: but, that I might not be guilty of undue intrusion, in case
of my success not being so complete as vanity miglit prompt me to
imagine, and also for the convenience of such as, from old associa-
tions alone, would wish to possess Illustrations of so “faire a place/'
I have made this, the first of three Parts, a complete Work in itself.
