Abstract:

When Christopher Wren visited Paris in 1665–66, he famously returned with ‘almost all France in paper'. His friend and colleague Robert Hooke, however, was not so lucky; his collection of architectural books and prints was acquired from London. This article outlines the contents of Hooke's architectural library and considers the general availability of architectural publications in late seventeenth-century London.
