T1 Vitruvius : ten books on architecture A1 Vitruvius Pollio., Rowland, Ingrid D., Howe, Thomas Noble,, Dewar, Michael, PB Cambridge University Press PP New York YR 1999 SN 0521553644 9780521553643 0521002923 9780521002929 AB "The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped humanist architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Extremely influential in the formation of the medieval and modern concept of a broad liberal arts education as the basis for responsible professionals, this work is remarkable also because over half of its content deals with aspects of Hellenistic art, science and technology, music theory, law, artillery, siege machinery, proportion and philosophy, among other topics." "This new, critical edition of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century."--Jacket.
