From John Carter, Some Account of the Abbey Church of Bath, illustrative of the Plans, Elevations, and Sections, of that Building, [Society of Antiquaries, London, 1798]

John Carter (1748 - 1817)

Carter was an English draughtsman and architect, an early advocate of the revival of Gothic architecture. He maintained and prompted Gothic architecture as the correct style for ecclesiastical structures. In 1780, on the recommendation of Michael Lort, Carter was employed by the Society of Antiquaries to make drawings and engravings. He was elected a fellow of the society in March 1795, and then worked as its draughtsman.
