65 editions published between 1663 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many illustrations have been omitted entirely, especially from Book IV. With reference to the 1570 Venice edition, these are: From Book I: the illustration of a column at page 15, the illustration at page 25, and the staircases on pages 62, 63, 65, and 66. From Book II: the plans on pages 11, 13, 21, 53, and 67, and the elevations on pages 31 and 32. Pages 187 and 203 of the manuscript has been ruled with compartments as if for drawing but no drawing has been completed. From Book III: the designs on pages 20 and 43. For Book IV, very few of the illustrations have been completed. The inscriptions for the illustration on page 16 have been written in, but the drawing has not been started. In the order in which they appear in the manuscript, the other drawings which have been made are from pages 21, 14, 38, 42, 59, and 94. As the translator also translated annotations from the illustrations, for example at page 533 (translating notes for Book IV, page 112 in the 1570 edition), it appears that they were intended to be included later
