Vitruvius : ten books on architecture

"The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped humanist architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Extremely influential in the formation of the medieval and modern concept of a broad liberal arts education as the basis for responsible professionals, this work is remarkable also because over half of its content deals with aspects of Hellenistic art, science and technology, music theory, law, artillery, siege machinery, proportion and philosophy, among other topics." "This new, critical edition of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century."--Jacket.

This new, critical edition of Vitruvius' Ten Books of Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century. Expressing the range of Vitruvius' style, the translation, along with the critical commentary and illustrations, aims to shape a new image of the Vitruvius who emerges as an inventive and creative thinker, rather than the normative summarizer, as he was characterized in the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Completely new and original translation made directly from study of preserved manuscripts as well as editions or annotations including those of Fra Giocondo, Angelo Colocci, and Rose; Translation applies Vitruvius' analytical terminology consistently throughout the book; Image emerges of Vitruvius as an apostle of principled variety and sane personal invention rather than as rigid formgiver." -- Publisher's website."
