A selection of drawings from an extensive archive left by the Amsterdam architect Abraham Nicolas Godefroy (1822-1899), a prominent member of the Maatschappij tot Bevordering der Bouwkunst from 1842 onwards. Godefroy’s own executed buildings were not numerous, but the drawings reproduced include several unexecuted projects of his in neo-classical and renaissance styles, as well as some very careful record drawings of seventeenth century buildings in Amsterdam.
