Regola delli cinque ordini d'Architettura [BOUND WITH] La due Regole della Prospettiva Practica di M. Iacomo Barozzi da Vignola
Bologna: G. Longhi, [1660], 1682. Hardcover. Very Good. Half calf and marbled paper (unadorned spine); two works bound together, folio (360x244mm); frontispiece portrait and 44 plates (Ordini); pp. [12], 145, [7], with engraved additional title-p., 8 plates, and numerous head- and tailpieces throughout (Prospettiva). Binding a bit scuffed and worn, but tight and square. A little scattered browning, foxing, dampstaining, but overall both works are nice and clean. Two plates in "Ordini" reinforced on the verso. Folio editions of Vignola's two important treatises, the first on the orders (first published in 1563) and the second on perspective (first published posthumously in 1583). The majority of editions were printed in smaller quarto or octavo formats. Though not in Fowler, this edition of the orders includes the portrait of Michelangelo (considered a reprint of Fowler 359). The second treatise on perspective is notable for the view of Bologna in the engraved title-page. Fowler 389.
