21 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here is an illustrated portrait of the oeuvre of one of the most accomplished architects of the Renaissance, Andrea Palladio. Following the same logic that inspired Palladio in Book II of his famous treatise Quattro Libri dell'Architettura, the editors have kept the written word to the absolute minimum, letting his sixty-six signature works speak for themselves in more than 250 photographs by Pino Guidolotti specially commissioned for this book. Guido Beltramini provides insightful historical and architectural references to this extravagant photographic survey." "With an introduction by architectural historian Howard Burns and a comprehensive bibliography of works on Palladio edited by Almut Goldhahn, this beautifully written and sumptuously illustrated compendium is a must for architectural enthusiasts and historians alike."--BOOK JACKET

"Five centuries after his birth Andrea palladio (1508-1580) remains the most significent figure in the history of Western architecture." "His exceptional buildings encapsulate the legacy of Italian Renaissance architectural practice while his celebrated treatise I Quattro Libri dell'Architettura ,in which he articulated his theory and understanding of architecture, has guaranteed his enduring influence." "Written by the leading authorities on the architect, Guido Beltramini and Howard Burns, the emphasis is on his buildings, his ideas and the people who played a part in their development. Palladio's drawings are shown in colour, with enlargements, to enable readers to explore his way of working."

Palladio and Northern Europe : books, travellers, architects by Andrea Palladio ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The private Palladio by Guido Beltramini ( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andrea Palladio's villa architecture is still admired for its elegance and harmony, but little is known about the person behind the buildings. Experienced Palladio researcher Guido Beltramini has worked meticulously on material from historical documents about Palladio's person and life, and assembled a full picture of the architect. Palladio in Private follows his career, his rise from being the ordinary miller's son Pietro della Gondola to become the architect Andrea Palladio. Beltramini does not just explore Palladio's origins, his training as a stonemason, and his complex relationship with powerful clients and scholars, but also his private life: his jovial character, his life as a married man with five children, and not least his profound conviction that architecture can and must enrich life. The text is complemented by numerous illustrations
Andrea Palladio e la villa veneta : da Petrarca a Carlo Scarpa ( Book )
6 editions published in 2005 in Italian and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Andrea Palladio and the architecture of battle : with the unpublished edition of Polybius' Histories by Guido Beltramini ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Published here for the first time are Palladio's preparatory materials for an illustrated edition of Polybius' Histories alongside Palladio's material for his edition of Julius Caesar' Commentaries, (1575). Long thought to have been lost, his original Polybius has now been recomposed by drawing on three manuscript copies: the mock-up used by Palladio to plan the edition, rediscovered in the London British Library in 1977; a second copy found in Florence in 1986 and a third exemplar only very recently found in the New York Public Library. Here the reproductions of the 43 etchings for the Polybius have been accompanied by 42 etchings which Palladio dedicated to Caesar's deeds. This offers us a complete picture of his effort to reconstruct those excellent features of ancient warfare on which Palladio wished to base his own proposals for reforming the contemporary Venetian militia, as well as give a different point of view on the history of architecture
Carlo Scarpa : mostre e musei 1944-1976 : case e paesaggi 1972-1978 by Carlo Scarpa ( Book )
6 editions published in 2000 in Italian and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Renaissance studies in honor of Joseph Connors ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The 177 essays in these two richly illustrated volumes represent the cutting edge of Italian Renaissance scholarship in nearly every one of its fields and were gathered to honor Joseph Connors, Director of Villa I Tatti from 2002 to 2010. Demonstrating I Tatti's pivotal role as the world's leading center for Italian Renaissance studies, the essays cover all the branches of art history, as well as many aspects of political, economic, and social history, literature, and music, from the early Renaissance to the eighteenth century. Appropriately, the volumes also include a selection of contributions devoted to Bernard Berenson and his legacy as both a collector and a scholar. Each of the authors--a group representing dozens of countries--was a Fellow or associate of the Harvard University Center for Italian Renaissance Studies during the eight years in which Connors served as Director
