Description:

Very Rare First Edition and a copy with good provenance. Richly engraved architectural title with the bust of Vignola after Federico Zuccaro, engraved dedication to Cardinal Farnese and the engraving to Pius IV. Folio (mm 405 x 272 mm), later patterned boards and cloth spine, printed paper label. 32 plates on 32 pages. Plate I without numeration and plate II with numeration, Plate IIII with the parts of the column delineated. (See Fowler for a review of the states of the engravings) A very good copy, a few plates with marginal reinforcement, some foxing or old evidence of staining as would be expected and is typical. This is a desirable copy of an important and very rare work. RARE FIRST EDITION OF THIS GREAT CLASSIC ON THE ORDERS OF ARCHITECTURE. By the famous Italian architect Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola (1507-1573), published eleven years prior to the author’s death. Vignola, with Palladio and Giulio Romano, was the leader of the Mannerist movement in architecture during the late Renaissance in Italy. First published in 1562, this great work--REGOLA DELLA CINQUE ORDINI D'ARCHITETTURA has long been a standard text. This great work, and highly elusive first edition is a noted rarity. It is one of the three or four most influential treatises on architecture ever written, and alone insures Vignola’s high sature in architectural history along with his contemporaries, Andrea Palladio and Michelangelo. It is a straight-forward guide to design, vey popular from the day it was first printed through the early twentieth century when an American edition was published by W.R. Ware (1902-1906). "Vignola presented— without theoretical obscurities— practical applications that could be understood by a prospective patron. He made a first trip to Rome in 1536 to make measured drawings of Roman temples, with a thought to publish an illustrated Vitruvius. In 1541 he was summoned to Fontainebleau by Francis I. Here he probably met his fellow Bolognese, the architect Sebastiano Serlio. From 1564 Vignola carried on Michangelo's work at St Peter's Basilica, and constructed the two subordinate domes according to Michelangelo's plans. This copy, with good provenance, belonged to Th. M. Cleland, the noted American designer and artist. Bookseller Inventory #
