Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION of Palladio's magisterial and widely influential architectural treatise, which both describes his own buildings and analyses the design and construction of major surviving Roman buildings. Palladio first travelled to Rome in 1541 to examine Roman remains and he collaborated with Daniele Barbaro on his edition of Vitruvius of 1556.
