9780262010993: On the Art of Building in Ten Books (English and Italian Edition)

The first major English translation of Alberti's fifteenth century treatise on the theory and practice of architecture. Alberti set out to replace Vitruvius' authority which had been undisputed for over a thousand years and frames a coherent account of the fragmented knowledge of antique architecture as it had survived through the dark and middle ages. His is the one book that established architecture as an intellectual and professional discipline rather than a craft and gave it a proper theoretical context. It provided a theoretical basis for the architecture of the Renaissance. Sixty-three illustrations. Glossary. Acidic paper. Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
