A collection of architectural drawings on microfilm from the V&A museum has recently been transferred from the Architecture Library to the Microtexts Room and is now available for reference at MICROFILM 11-035.
The drawings span the period of the 17th Century through to the early 20th Century, and illustrate over 4000 works from almost 200 artists, including Sir Christopher Wren, Nicholas Hawksmoor, Robert Adam, and Sir Gilbert Scott. They include plans, measured drawings, interior and decorative details, and occasionally correspondence.
An indexed guide to the contents of the reels can be found at the end of Reel 23, or at the back of the Microtexts Room, in hardcopy, with the other collections’ guides.
