@ Handworks 2017 – Original Roubo Print 273

In another of the detailed construction drawing sprinkled throughout L’art du Menuisier Roubo presents Print 273, “Developments [Details] of the Buffet Represented in the Previous Plate.”  Here he shows the precise schematics and cross sections of the assembly and especially the interrelation of the joinery and the moldings used to create a beautiful armoir or buffet.

Like a great many of these pages Roubo both drew the illustration and engraved the printing plate himself.

Due to some staining just inside the left border of the print this one is probably in fair condition, as is reflected in the price.

If you have ever wanted to own a genuine piece of Rouboiana, this is your chance.   I will be selling this print at Handworks on a first-come basis, with terms being cash, check, or Paypal if you have a smart phone and can do that at the time of the transaction.
