Description: Dove si mettono in disegno tutte le maniere di edificii, e si trattano di quelle cose, che sono piu necessarie a sapere gli architetti. Con la aggiunta a delle inventioni di cinquanta porte, e gran numero di palazzi publici, e privatti nella citta, & in villa, e varii accidenti, che possono occorrere nel fabricare... Con un'indice copiosissimo con molte considerationi, & un breve discorso sopra questa materia, raccolto da M. Gio. Domenico Scamozzi Vicentino. Profusely illustrated with many hundreds of woodcuts throughout. Each book with a separate decorative title page but continuous pagination. [24], 243 leaves with several errors in pagination. Short thick 4to (measures 9.75 x 7.25 x 2 inches), bound in decorative 19th century calf, well-rubbed and spine now rebacked in plain cloth, all edges red. Venetia: Apresso Giacomo de'Franceschi.

Comments: Collected edition of Serlio's seven books (Geometry; Perspective; Antiquities of Rome; Rules of the Five Orders; Sacred Temples; Doorways; Accidents of the Architect), edited by Giandomenico Scamozzi, father of the architect Vincenzo. The first several pages are lightly dampstained in upper corner, but otherwise a remarkably clean copy with fairly ample margins.
