Notes NOTES: This design could be associated with Stevens' entry for the 1769 Royal Exchange competition, Dublin, which was exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1770 (numbers 176-178). 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.
