Andrea Palladio was a 16th-century Italian architect who was influenced strongly by the Greek and Roman architectures of Vitruvius. Palladio, alongside Vignola, is widely considered one of the most important figures in, not only Italian architecture, but in the history of architecture.

 

While mostly known for his designs of Venetian buildings, he also wrote a treatise which set forth his rules for architecture. This work discusses classical styles, decorative designs, and proper materials. Palladio adapted Vignola’s ‘Five Orders of Architecture’ and included new door designs.

 

This work, “Treaty on the Five Orders of Architecture” was translated out of the original Italian into French by Pierre le Muet, an important 17th-century French architect. This edition was published by Dutch printer Henry Wetstein and is beautifully illustrated throughout!

 

Note from Fowler:

“The text of this edition in French is much condensed, but contains, the plates of the earlier Dutch edition.”
