Other than identification and limited notes on the plates there is no descriptive text as such, however. The introduction by Pennoyer and Walker only discusses the significance of Synder's original work and others of the same ilk. While these technical drawings would undoubtedly be a valuable reference to architects practicing in the classical mode, they might be too limiting to interest the non-professional.
