The four books on architecture by Andrea Palladio( Book )

Renaissance architect Palladio was one of the most influential figures the field of architecture has ever produced. Of even greater significance than his buildings is this treatise, one of the most important books in the literature of architecture
Andrea Palladio : the architect in his time by Bruce Boucher( Book )

13 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 744 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

Palladio's Venice : architecture and society in a Renaissance Republic by Tracy Elizabeth Cooper( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Celebrated Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio (15081580) devoted much of his career to the city of Venice. Famous for public buildings he had designed in his native Vicenza and country villas he had built for wealthy patricians there, he arrived in Venice in the mid- 1550s confident of establishing a successful new practice. Yet Palladio s Venetian career never matched his lofty expectations. Failing to achieve the position of state architect or to earn the kinds of commissions to which he was accustomed, he found himself working in a category new to his practice: ecclesiastical architecture. It was his stunning churches, however, including San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore, that established Palladio s lasting renown. In this fascinating and beautifully illustrated book, Tracy E. Cooper organizes Palladio s work in Venice according to different types of patrons. She discusses his major monuments as well as less well-known work for charitable foundations, convents, triumphal processions, and the rebuilding of the Ducal Palace. She tells the compelling story of an established architect breaking into a new market and of a Renaissance city in the midst of sweeping change"--From publisher description
Palladio's Rome : a translation of Andrea Palladio's two guidebooks to Rome by Andrea Palladio( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 495 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 )

8 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 395 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
The villas of Palladio by Kim Williams( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Villas of Palladio is a collection of large-format pen-and-ink watercolor renderings of all of Palladio's villas. 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

This is the first book to compile all four volumes into one, with over two hundred beautiful reprints from the 1786 edition, showcasing Palladio's designs for seventy-five villas, churches, and public spaces; and for the first time, the English translation of Scamozzi's building analyses for Palladio's most well-known works"--
