482. COURTONE, Architecture moderne, ou l’art de bien bâtir pour toutes sortes de personnes, vol. 2, in 4, Paris 1728, fig., chez Jombert.
Opera divisa in cinque parti, il cui secondo volume è tutto consecrato a cento cinquanta tavole intagliate in rame. L’epoca infelice pel gusto rende l’opera di mediocre pregio ec. Il nome di Courtone non è nel frontespizio e l’opera è annunciata anonima, ma trovasi segnato sotto alcune delle stampe.
