500 # # $a The plates (apart from the title-pl.) carry numbers 1-100 and are listed numerically in the Index To The Plates; but they are sometimes found as first issued serially in wrappers, when, although numbered, they were not in numeric order. Plate 77 is misnumbered 11.
505 0 # $a [T.pl., dedic.] - Preface - Architectural Sketches ... Index To The Plates - [Plates]. - (Note that in the Academy's first set the work is bound in the order of the parts; with the result that the t.pl., dedic., Preface and Index To The Plates are found not at the beginning but within the final wrapper.)
508 # # $a The title-plate is signed as designed and drawn by R.N. Shaw, with figures in the border from sketches by J.R. Clayton. All plates are signed as drawn, or drawn and lithographed, by R.N. Shaw. Two are also signed as from sketches by David Mac Gibbon (pl.11) or John T. Christopher (pl. 49). A few are signed as drawn by R.N. Shaw but lithographed by R.K. Thomas (pl. 68), A. Newman (pl. 36, 59, 94), W. Butler (pl.73) or R.M. Bryson (pl. 76).

Each carries the imprint of the lithographers, Day & Son.

The work is dedicated by the Author to the President and Members of the Royal Academy of Arts, London.

520 2 # $a No publication-date is given on the title-plate; but the date of 1858 is carried by the dedication, Preface and plate 1. Earlier dates are carried by some plates - of 1856 (pl. 34, 45, 83) or 1857 (pl. 57, 74). The work was first published serially, in probably 15 wrappers. (The Royal Academy's first set includes fifteen wrappers. The first ten are numbered 1-10 [except that the fifth carries the printed number 4 with the number 5 overwritten by hand] and each calls for 5 plates; the eleventh carries the printed number '11 & 12' and carries the printed word 'plates' but does not specify their number; the remaining four carry no printed numbers nor the word 'plates', but have been inscribed by hand in ink, '13&14', '15&16', '17&18' and '19&20'.)

A title-variant is printed on the upper parts of the wrappers that are retained in some sets: 'Architectural Sketches from the Continent A Series of Views and Details from France Italy & Germany By Richard Norman Shaw Archt. Part 1[-...]'.

The plates show elevations, views and architectural details of churches, public buildings and houses, mostly of Gothic style, in France (Amiens, Anger, Auxerre, Beaune, Beauvais, Bourges, Chartres, Le Mans, Paris, Rouen, Seez, Sens, Strasbourg, Semur, Toul), Italy (Assisi, Foligno, Florence, Lucca, Milan, Naples, Padua, Pisa, Pistoia), Germany (Erfurt, Freiburg, Hildesheim, Innspruck, Lubeck, Magdeburg, Nuremberg, Ratisbon), the Czech Republic (Prague) and Belgium (Antwerp, Bruges, Malines, Tournay).
