Summary NoteWindsor Castle was developed between the 11th and the 15th century. Some further modifications were made in the 17th century, and extensive works were carried out in the late eighteenth and early 19th centuries by James Wyatt and Jeffry Wyatville (1824-40). Michael Gandy was for many years an assistant to Sir Jeffry.

The frontispiece shows a portrait of Benjamin Baud. Sixteen lithographed plates show views of Windsor Castle; the rest show plans, elevations and architectural details of the castle.

The sixteen lithographed plates (pl. 1, 5, 8, 11, 12, 14, 18, 19, 21, 28, 29, 31, 33, 34, 38, 40) are signed as drawn by Michael Gandy or Benjamin Baud and lithographed by G. Hawkins jnr., G. Moore or J.C. Bourne. The engraved plates are signed as drawn by Michael Gandy or Benjamin Baud and engraved by Benj. Winkles.

Each plate carries the publishers' imprint - either of John Williams Library of Science & Art (from which the words 'John Williams' have in some cases been deleted) or R.A. Sprigg Library of Science & Art. Many of the lithographed plates carry also the imprint of the lithographic printers, Day & Haghe.

The title-page vignette is signed as drawn by Benjamin Baud and engraved by S. Williams. The in-text print on p.11 is unsigned.

The work is dedicated by Michael Gandy and Benjamin Baud to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.
