Excerpt from Observations on the Plans for the New Library

I am fortunately enabled, to distribute along with the following remarks, lithograph copies of the Ground and Library Plans in Mr. Cockerell's design and etchings, of the same in Mr. Rickman's: and I trust that by their aid, my readers will possess the power of estimating the validity of most of the arguments which I have ventured to advance. It may be proper to add a few words of explanation concerning them.

The Ground Plan of Mr. Cockerell's design exhibits the portion of the Building, which is proposed to be executed immediately, in a pink tint, the present Library or Buildings, which will remain untouched, in shade, and the rest in outline. The sto?, which are not considered essential to the design, are given in outline only. The same observations may be extended to the Library plan which accompanies it. The neighbouring buildings and boundaries are also marked in shade or outline, for the purpose of exhibiting the position of the New Buildings with respect to them. It will thus be seen, that the front line of columns in the double colonnade is immediately in advance of the arcades of the present Library, and that the elevation of the new will coincide with that of the old Library: the passage through the whole building will lead to the south side of Clare Hall Chapel which may thus be seen from St. Mary's Church: the space in front of Clare Hall will be considerably enlarged; and the Senate House Passage will be widened to the extent of half its present width, by a sunken area, for the purpose of lighting the basement story.

The positions and boundaries of the neighbouring buildings are not given in Mr. Rickman's Ground Plan, but it may be adjusted to that of Mr. Cockerell, by attending to the following observations.
