# Palladio Londinensis : or, the London art of building. In three parts. Part I. Containing such geometrical problems as are necessary in describing Squares, Circles, Ovals, Polygons, Arches, and Groins. Also the most approved Methods for the Mensuration of Superficies and Solids, and these applied to the measuring of all Sorts of Artificers Works, relating to Building. Likewise the Prices, not of the Materials only, but also of the several kinds of Works performed by, Bricklayers, Masons, Carpenters, Joiners, Smiths, Plaisterers, Plumbers, Glaziers, Painters, Paviors. The Prices of all Sorts of Iron-Work, viz. Nails, and the exact Weight they ought to be. Locks, Bolts, Hinges, Latches, &c. Axes, Hammers, Saws, Chizzels, Augars, &c. With Directions for making an Estimate of the Charge of any Fabric great of small. Part. II. Containing plain and easy Directions for the Construction of the Five Orders of Architecture, with their Pedestals, Imposts, Arches, Elevations, and Profiles. The usual Mouldings in Architecture. Frontispieces, with the several Doors proper for each Order. Ornaments for Doors and Windows ; all accurately described by Modules and Minutes. Likewise a new and easy Method (never before published) of finding the exact Module, or Diameter, in order to the erecting either Column or Pilasters three several ways according to true Proportion: First, Arithmetically. Secondly, Geometrically, by Scale and Compass. Thirdly, By an Inspectional Plain Table, shewing the exact Diameter in Proportion to any Height given, and in all the Variety of Cases that possibly can happen in Practice. Also how to calculate the Diameter of all the Orders, according to the Proportions laid down by any other Author. Likewise the Method of reducing any Module (from 6 to 24 Inches Diameter) to Feet and Inches, by a new Inspectional Table ; whereby the Trouble of making and dividing a Module into Minutes, is avoided, and the Common Two Foot Rule made to supply the Place thereof. Part III. Contains a descriptio of the several kinds of stair-cases ; the various Forms of their twisted Rails, &c. Also the best Rules for framing and traffing all manner of Roofs, whether Square or Bevel. Likewise the Ground Rules necessary to be observed in Architecture and Building in general. The whole exemplified on Thirty Seven Copper Plates. To which is annexed, the builder's dictionary ; containing, An Alphabetical Explanation of the Terms used in Architecture. By William Salmon, Jun.
