DESCRIPTION OF THE PLATES. PLATE I. A Green-house and Exotic-house executed for W. LINWOOD, Esq. AT HACKNEY, MIDDLESEX. THIS house is built adjoining the dwelling, and communicates by a door with the library. The plan is of a canted form, making the front incline to a concave shape. The interior of the Exotic-house is occupied by a pit for pjunging plants; and the Green-house has a stage for the usual purpose of placing plants upon. There is a level pit in the Exotic- house, bounded by a brick wall, which is filled with tan to the height of two and a half feet above the surface of the floor. The lights on the roof are hung by weights placed in apertures in the back wall. The front sashes are made to slide, to admit air when required. B
