L’ art de bâtir des maisons de campagne où l’on traite de leur
distribution, de leur construction, & de leur décoration by Charles Etienne Briesux is divided into two separate books. The first tome is composed of 6 diffrent parts and each of these parts are divided in chapters. The first part has 9 chapters, the second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth have 4 chapters each.
The first part with its 9 chapters is completly made out of text. On the other hand, the following parts are dominated by beautiful drawings of ground plans and facades of country houses.
The second tome is divided in 7 parts and each of these parts are composed by chapters ranging from 4 to 8 per part. This tome is more about details in the house. There are still a good amount of drawings of ground plans and facades in the first part but it handles ornaments and structure in the following ones. The text is more dominant than the pictures in the second book.
The drawings take usually the whole page and they are quite often put into pairs one above each other.
