[Drawings of architectural detailing]
Special Collections NA2841 D728 1890
In 2012 some 30 architectural books were donated to Special Collections by the family of the late Niel Wales (1927-2011). They included Edward Blore’s Monumental Remains of Noble and Eminent Persons (1826); Thomas Chippendale’s Gentleman & Cabinet-makers Director. 3rd ed. ; and Matthew Dubourg’s Views of the Remains of Ancient Buildings in Rome (1820); each in their own way must have helped Wales in his work as a partner in Mason and Wales, the oldest practising architectural firm in New Zealand. This is a page from a scrapbook that contains numerous illustrations of English buildings and hand-drawn architectural ornaments.
