Book Condition: Very Good

Description:

Imprint: Si stampa in Roma da Gio(vanni) B(ap)t(is)ta de Rossi Milanese in piazza nauona, [c. 1625]. Folio (380 x 255mm). 51 leaves. Pagination: I-XXXVI (including plates III-XXXVI), +17 non. num. plates. Full-page engraved architectural title-leaf includes the arms of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, to whom the work is dedicated, and the half-length portrait of Vignola in aedicule facing to the viewer’s right and holding a compass, flanked by muses of geometry and math. 36 full-page copper-plate engraved plates with captions, 2 folding, depicting portals, lintels, arcades, mantles, capitals, and other parts and orders of classical architecture, including the two folding plans for the palace of the Cardinal Farnese which Vignola had been redesigning since 1558. Plates II and III are full-page engraved letters to Cardinal Farnese and Pope Pius IV respectively, and are most interesting for their typographic layout. Vellum boards, spine titled REGOLA DEL ARCHITETT. DI I. BAROZZIO 1570, 1617 and library label obscuring the rest, in custom cloth slipcase; (lightly stained rear cover, some closely trimmed margins and offsetting but images intact and are highly fine impressions). Nineteenth-century rubber stamp of the Bibliotheca Heberiana to front flyleaf. Richard Heber (1774-1833) was a ripe scholar and bibliophile with a massive personal library, sold in 1834. Mid-century ownership inscription of Prof. James van der Pool of the Avery Architecture Library (Columbia) to front pastedown. Rare later Roman edition of Vignola’s famous Canon work on the "Five Orders of Architecture." This copy is the de Rossi edition that was printed circa 1625 and is the first of two that de Rossi produced; the second appeared about ten years later. As the imprint details lack in so many of the Italian editions of the Vignola Regola, it is somewhat difficult to determine definitive dates of issue throughout the late-sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Earlier editions of this text appeared almost consecutively in Rome and Venice, with the first in 1562 and the latest in 1695. Vignola’s "Five Orders of Architecture" in all had over 250 editions; it is one of the most successful architecture textbooks ever written. The ample reprinting of this work allowed Vignola’s work to pave the way for a new theory of architecture, one based on practicability. Vignola, while influenced by his contemporaries like Sebastiano Serlio and a burgeoning Baroque aesthetic, was focused on studying the classical monuments. He believed that by their interpretation he was able to pass on fine antique design principles through knowledge. The title contains the Vignola’s self-confident portrait, as one who famously states, "It is always necessary to know what we want our eyes to see." Vignola was one of the major architects who brought about the sixteenth-century Mannerist movement known for its bizarre and fanciful qualities. In comparison, this work on the "Five Orders" is more dry and astute; it is regarded as a means and not an end to Vignola’s numerous artistic contributions.

This copy is the de Rossi edition that was printed circa 1625 and is the first of two that de Rossi produced; the second appeared about ten years later.
