Description: Architectural print. Uncolored copper plate engraving. Image measures 12.75" x 8 7/8".

Comments: Engraving of architectural details, designed by the Venetian Andreas Palladio (1508-1580), whose architecture is characterized by its symmetry and balance, influenced by the classical design of Ancient Greece and Rome. Giacomo Leoni (1686-1746) was also an architect from Venice, though he worked for most of his life in England. Greatly inspired by Palladio's neo-classical restraint, Leoni sought to incorporate this simplicity of design with the prevailing Baroque trends of ornamentation. Leoni republished Palladio's "I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura" in English (circa 1715) which helped to popularize Palladio's style abroad. This particular print comes from the later French edition of this popular publication. Minor aging along edges and minor scattered foxing and staining.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
