NASH, John (1752-1835). Illustrations of Her Majesty's palace at Brighton, formerly the Pavilion: executed under the superintendence of John Nash . London: J.B. Nichols & Son, sold also by R. Loder and James Taylor of Brighton, 1838. 2° (520 x 370mm). 66 plates on 59 leaves, comprising 31 hand-coloured aquatints, one folding, on 28 buff mounts, each mount with gilt and ink-ruled border, most with printed captions on verso, and 35 uncoloured aquatints and line etchings, one folding, on 31 sheets. (Uncoloured plates quite heavily spotted, a few captions lacking from the versos of mounts.) Contemporary red half morocco, gilt edges (spine rubbed and faded, corners scuffed). Provenance : Wm. Elyard Walmisley (armorial bookplate). Second edition. Plans for the orientalisation of the Royal Pavilion at Brighton, originally completed by Henry Holland in 1787, were published by Humphrey Repton in 1808, but it was eventually John Nash by now the favourite architect of the Prince Regent, who undertook the enlargement and conversion of the building to "hindu style" between 1817 and 1824. The illustrations commemorating his achievment were largely the work of his protegé Augustus Pugin, with additional views by C. Moore, John Willis C. Fielding, and others, the coloured and uncoloured plates basically representing two states. The same plates were used in both the two editions of 1826 and 1838, with a few variations in colouring that are noted by Abbey. E.W. Brayley's historical introduction is here included for the first time. Cf. Abbey Scenery 62.
