The most successful architectural textbook ever written.”

 

A rare printing of Vignola’s ‘Five Orders of Architecture’ Giacomo da Vignola was perhaps the most important 16th-century architects. This edition was one of many to be based on Pierre Le Muet’s reduction of 1632. The majority of the illustrations are straight copies of those in Le Muet’s edition, and parts of the text are also copied directly from the same source, although a few captions have been revised by Bernard Menessier , and the comparison of the orders which appears in some of the Italian folio editions has been added. According to Fornari, this entire work was engraved on copper.
