10. The builder's companion, and workman's general assistant
: Demonstrating, after the most easy and practical method, all the principal rules of architecture, from the plan to the ornamental finish; illustrated with a greater number of useful and familiar examples than any work of that kind hitherto published; with clear and ample instructions, annexed to each subject or number, on the same plate; being not only useful but necessary to all masons, bricklayers, plasterers, carpenters, joiners, and others concerned in the several branches of building, &c. Also, the figure, description, and use of a new-invented joint-rule, to calculated as to render easy the drawing of any figure, architrave, frize, cornice, or moulding, that can be required to any given scale. The whole correctly engraven on seventy-seven folio copper-plates, from the designs of William Pain the subjects herein chiefly consist of, I. Of foundations, walls, and their diminutions, fitness of chimneys, and proportion of light to rooms, with the due scantlings of timber to be cut for building, &c. II. Great variety of geometrical, elliptic, and polygon figures, with rules for their formation. Centering of all sorts, for groinds, brick and stone arches, &c. both circular and splay'd, also with circular sofits in a circular wall: many examples for glewing and vaneering, niches, &c. with rules for tracing the cover of curve-line roofs, piers, vases, pedestals for sun-dials, busts, &c. and their most suitable proportions. III. General directions for framing floors and partitions, truss-roofs, &c. and methods to find the length and backing of hips, strait or curve lines to any pitch, square or bevel. IV. Of stair-cases, variously constructed; the methods of working ramp and twist-rails-profils of stairs to shew the manner of setting carriages for the steps, also the framing of string-boards and rails, and likewise of fixing them. V. The five orders of architecture from Palladin, with the rule for gauging flutes and fillets on a diminish'd column, by a method extremely easy, and intirely new. VI. Doors, windows, frontispieces, chimney-pieces, cornices, mouldings, &c. truly proportion'd, in a plain and genteel taste. VII. Sacred ornaments, viz. altar-pieces, pulpits, monuments, &c. VIII. Gothic architecture, being a various collection of columns, entablatures, arches, doors, windows, chimney-pieces, and other decorations in that prevailing taste-and it may be noted of these, as of all the foregoing examples, that they are immediately adapted to workmen, and may be executed by the meanest capacity
