Vitruvii De architectura libri decem by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

133 editions published between 1836 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, ein römischer Militärtechniker und Ingenieur, verfasste mit "De architectura libri decem" - "Zehn Bücher über Architektur" das einzige bis heute erhalten gebliebene Werk der antiken Architekturtheorie. Die Bücher sind dem Kaiser Augustus als Dank für dessen Förderung gewidmet. Dieses Werk soll dem Leser einerseits ermöglichen, Bauwerke zu errichten, ihm andererseits auch helfen sie zu beurteilen und zu bewerten. Die zehn unterschiedlich gewichteten Bücher behandeln die historischen, ästhetischen und technischen Grundlagen der Architektur ebenso wie den Bau von Tempeln und Wohnhäusern sowie den Städtebau. Im neunten und zehnten Buch werden mit der Zeitmessung und dem Bau von Wasserhebemaschinen jedoch auch andere Techniken behandelt. Die "Zehn Bücher über Architektur" bieten die erste umfassende Behandlung der antiken Technik (Zeitmessung, Baumaschinen, Wasserräder, Kriegsmaschinen), Architektur und Raumgestaltung.

Vitruvius : ten books on architecture by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped humanist architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Extremely influential in the formation of the medieval and modern concept of a broad liberal arts education as the basis for responsible professionals, this work is remarkable also because over half of its content deals with aspects of Hellenistic art, science and technology, music theory, law, artillery, siege machinery, proportion and philosophy, among other topics." "This new, critical edition of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century."--Jacket

The Architecture of Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, in ten books by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

31 editions published between 1826 and 2014 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Active in the first century BCE, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio wrote his influential architectural treatise in ten books. It remained the standard manual for architects into the medieval period. The topics which Vitruvius considered essential are diverse, including aspects of design as well as geometry and engineering. In the nineteenth century, the English architect and author Joseph Gwilt (1784-1863) won greater acclaim for the books he published than for the buildings he designed. His most celebrated achievement, The Encyclopaedia of Architecture (1842), is also reissued in this series. Gwilt's one-volume translation of Vitruvius's Latin text was first published in 1826. Supplanting previous versions, this work was long regarded as the standard edition in English. It contains a brief life of Vitruvius as well as an annotated list of previous editions since the fifteenth century. A number of detailed illustrative plates accompany the text
