Description

Excerpt from Encyclopedia of Architecture, Vol. 1 of 2: A Dictionary of the Science and Practice of Architecture, Building, Carpentry, Etc., From the Earliest Ages to the Present Time

An alphabetical arrangement was adopted by the author, mr. P. Nicholson, as considered the best adapted for the use of mechanics, as well as the most expeditious, a knowledge of the meaning of the terms of art, which are very numerous, being more easily acquired by this mode than by any other.

The rise and progress of every department are given as far as authentic information could be obtained. The greatest attention has been paid to the definitions; and it is hoped that they will be found to be far more intelligible than those which have been hitherto given in Dictionaries, and in Treatises on Architecture. Geometry being the key to works of this description, such geometrical problems are introduced as will be found useful in delineating the various kinds of objects that may occur.

Orthographical and perspective drawing being necessary, not only to the Architect, but also to the Builder and Workman, their principles are laid down, and their application is shown by means of numerous examples.
