The four books of architecture by Andrea Palladio ( Book )
45 editions published between 1737 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The four books of Architecture offers a compendium of Palladio's art and of the ancient Roman structures which inspired him. The First Book is devoted to building materials and techniques and the five orders of architecture: Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite. Palladio indicates the characteristic features of each order and supplies illustrations of various architectural details. The Second Book deals with private houses and mansions, almost all of Palladio's own design. Shown and described are many of his villas in and near Venice and Vicenza (including the famous Villa Capra, or "The Rotunda," the Tiene Palace, and the Valmarana Palace). Each plate gives a front view drawing of the building and the general floor plan. The Third Book is concerned with streets, bridges, piazzas, and basilicas, most of which are of ancient Roman origin. In the Fourth Book, Palladio reproduces the designs of a numer of ancient Roman temples. Plates 51 - 60 are plans and architectural sketches of the Pantheon
Andrea Palladio : the architect in his time by Bruce Boucher ( Book )
11 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 735 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andrea Palladio (1508-1589) was one of the most creative architects the world has ever known; many consider his villas, palaces, and churches the epitome of Renaissance ideals. Though his buildings have often been photographed and numerous specialized studies have been written about his career, never before have Palladio's life and times been brought together in a narrative as incisive as this one. Richly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs as well as period plans and drawings, this volume defines Palladio's remarkable career against the backdrop of the dramatic events and personalities of the age, while the buildings are discussed in terms of their importance in art history

Andrea Palladio's 'Villa Rotonda' in Vicenza became the most famous building of its kind; it influenced many later designs and remains an important source of inspiration for architects.

Palladio's Rome : a translation of Andrea Palladio's two guidebooks to Rome by Andrea Palladio ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Andrea Palladio (1508-1580), one of the most famous architects of all time, published two enormously popular guides to the churches and antiquities of Rome in 1554. Striving to be both scholarly and popular, Palladio invited his Renaissance readers to discover the charm of Rome's ancient and medieval wonders, and to follow pilgrimage routes leading from one church to the next. He also described ancient Roman rituals of birth, marriage and death. Here translated into English and joined in a single volume for the first time, Palladio's guidebooks allow modern visitors to enjoy Rome exactly as their predecessors did 450 years ago." "Like the originals, this new edition is pocket sized and therefore easily read on site. Enhanced with illustrations and commentary, the book also includes the first full English translation of Raphael's famous letter to Pope Leo X on the monuments of ancient Rome. For architectural historians, tourists and armchair travellers, the book offers insights into the antiquarian and ecclesiastical preoccupations of one of the greatest of the Renaissance architectural masters."--BOOK JACKET
The drawings of Andrea Palladio by Douglas Lewis ( Book )
10 editions published between 1981 and 2000 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Palladio is a subject now widely taught in liberal arts curricula, as well as in professional schools. Architects, too-- both in training and in practice-- have found Lewis's display of the successive steps in Palladio's design process to be a visual and historical narrative that can illuminate and even inspire their own conceptual evolutions. But, above all, students and scholars of Renaissance art and architectural history will most appreciate the author's wealth of contextual detail, the vibrant sketches of Palladio's negotiations with mentors and collaborators, as well as new material on the lives of his patrons, with revised identifications and datings of their projects (including the first comprehensive chronology for Palladio's drawings). This book has also pioneered in bringing together the documentary and visual evidence for Palladio as the primary designer of elaborately painted and decorated interiors, a revelation that should fundamentally affect our understanding of Palladian architecture."--Bookseller's site

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The meticulous paintings capture the timeless beauty of Palladian architecture and provide a detailed record of these masterpieces. Including a brief description of each villa, samples of artist Giovanni Giaconi's preparatory sketches, and Palladio's own woodcuts reproduced for comparison, this comprehensive book offers a deep understanding of Palladio and the splendors of his work."--BOOK JACKET
