(fl. 1804–45).

Probably from Devon, Brown established an architectural practice, but his main claim to fame was as a teacher of drawing and a writer. His pupils included M. A. Nicholson, and he wrote The Principles of Practical Perspective … (1815), the indiscriminately eclectic Domestic Architecture (1842), Sacred Architecture (1845), and The Rudiments of Drawing Cabinet and Upholstery Furniture (1822 and 1835), one of the most handsome of early C19 English furniture pattern-books, in which Neo-Classical taste is well to the fore.
