Vol.1: The smaller buildings encountered here stand in close artistic relationship to their greater and more magnificent neighbors inspired by the greatest and most famous artists of the Renaissance. "This study if the shell, of the dwellings, great and humble alike, is in itself of importance because many of the artists of the Renaissance were born in the simpler sort of surroundings we are going to study" (author). Includes study of some casinos, a number of details, e.g. gates, doorways, steps, facades, a well, etc. and a list of illustrations. Vol.2: The book features architecture the Venetian plains showing the careful planning of the Palladian school. Since there is no authentic list of his complete work, it is difficult to judge merely by the design whether a building is by Palladio or by an apt pupil who worked with the master's book in hand.
