Notes NOTES: This design is probably associated with the designs for 'A London House, fit for a person of distinction' which Stevens exhibited at the Free Society of Artists in 1763 (see also RIBA35947-RIBA35949). This drawing is found in an album which was formerly attributed to Sir William Chambers. It contains over 100 theoretical designs, mostly by Edward Stevens but with some by John Yenn and some from the office of William Chambers. Stevens was a pupil of Chambers from 1760 to 1766. The drawings in the album date from between 1762 and 1777.
