Introduction 
Before the young student can proceed to the Art of making Designs of the
Ornamental Parts of Buildings. 
He must understand, How to Proportion the five orders of Columns; and that
this Work may not be dependant on 
any other for that Purpose; I shall therefore first Explain, the manner of
Proportioning them at large by 
equal Parts ina more concise, but full and easy Manner than has been yet
done. 
Plate I.          The Tuscan Base and Pedestal 
The Proportions of the Principal parts of the Tuscan Order.
