Sets of architectural drawings in Mackintoshs own hand are extremely rare, with sets for only two other buildings known to have survived. This set of plans, elevations and a cross-section for Auchinibert have been identified as in Mackintoshs hand, with annotations by the architect as well as amendments showing later alterations to the house. The drawings now join the pre-eminent collection of work by Mackintosh at the Hunterian, where they will complement existing holdings of drawings for Auchinibert and provide valuable insight into the architects working process.
