About this Item

Four volumes in 2, 4to (215 x 165mm). Engraved portrait frontispiece of Andrea Palladio in first volume. Pagination: Book I: [viii], 1-128pp., one full-page diagram after p. 32 and after text 52 numbered plates of Palladian architectural facades signed by Anto. Mugnon (10 folding). Book II: [iv], 1-76pp., 51 numbered plates of Palladian architectural facades signed by Anto. Mugnon (8 folding). Book III: [iv], 1-60pp., 52 numbered plates of Palladian architectural facades signed by Anto. Mugnon (7 folding). Book IV: [iv], 1-80, 54 numbered plates of Palladian architectural facades signed by Anto. Mugnon (8 folding). Text in Italian. Modern red cloth, renewed endpapers; (spines slightly sunned, some minor marginal tape repairs to fore-edges and plates, some slight insect damage, otherwise complete and hearty volumes). Second Italian Edition of Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi’s introduction to Palladio’s remarkable oeuvre. Ottavio Bertotti Scamozzi was the first to collect and illustrate all of Andrea Palladio’s buildings in the eighteenth century; his monumental four-volume work was first published in Italian in 1776 and in French in 1796. This is the posthumous second Italian edition of Bertotti Scamozzi’s Palladian corpus. In it, Bertotti Scamozzi performed a survey of all the works of Palladio and analyzed them in context of the architect’s original aim and intention. Each building was represented in measured plan, elevation, and section from his well-known villas of the Veneto to his lesser-known engineering structures, such as bridges. In addition, Berotti Scamozzi took artistic license to record the buildings as they were intended to be, not neccesarily as they were executed. A discerning observer, Bertotti Scamozzi characterized the works of Palladio as having an air of magnificence. His efforts greatly contributed to the knowledge and dissemination of a Palladian revival in Italy and in the colonial United States. Antonio Mugnoni, little known Vicentine engraver, worked on the prints in several architectural publications of his time, as here, and collaborated on other notorious work by Bertotti Scamozzi, as in his engravings for the Olympic theatre in Vicenza.
