Scottish architect Sir Colin Campbell published a series of large folio books, “Vitruvius Brittanicus”, illustrating the chief buildings of 18th century England, with a focus on classical architecture. Campbell was an assistant to the Earl of Burlington, and both were strong adherents to Vitruvian and Palladian classical architecture. While Campbell’s involvement with “Vitruvius Brittanicus” was not until shortly before it was published, his discussion of Vitruvian and Palladian principles, with particular praise for the work of Inigo Jones, had an enormous influence on the revival of Palladianism in England. This work is widely recognized and considered one of, if not the most important books in British architectural history.
