This catalog accompanied the exhibit of illustrated architectural books from the collections of the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections. The exhibit focused on the career of South Carolina architect Robert Mills (1781-1855), now best-known as architect of the Washington Monument. Several of the titles were among those that Mills himself listed as influencing his development as an architect, while other represented the major schools of architectural influence from which he drew his work.


The exhibit accompanied by this catalog was mounted in conjunction with Professor John M. Bryan’s seminar, ARTH 544R: Robert Mills.
