The workman's golden rule for drawing and working the five orders in architecture : Wherein their pedestals, columns, entablatures, imposts and arches, are taken from the best examples of the ancients, and proportioned by equal parts, in a more concise, accurate, and easy manner than has been done in any language. For the instruction of apprentices and journeyman, masons, bricklayers, carpenters, joiners, carvers, turners, painters, plaisterers, cabinet-makes, &c. (and such masters) who are unaquainted with so much architecture, as is absolutely necessary for them to understand, in their respective professions: and others, who desire a just knowledge of the fundamental rules of that noble art / By B. Langley, architect
