The family in Renaissance Florence by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )

"I libri della famiglia has long been viewed by Italians as a classic of Italian literature. It displays a variety of styles--high rhetoric, systematic moral exposition, novelistic portrayal of character--in the typical Renaissance framework of the dialogue. The chief merit of the work lies in its scope: it directly assays the personal value system of the Florentine bourgeois class, which did so much to foster the development of art, literature, and science. This translation is based upon the critical edition by Cecil Grayson, Serena Professor of Italian Studies, Oxford."--Jacket
Leon Battista Alberti : master builder of the Italian Renaissance by Anthony Grafton( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,048 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472) was one of the most exciting figures of the Italian Renaissance. He wrote the first modern treatise on painting, the first modern manual of classical architecture, and a powerful set of "dialogues" about the princely families of Florence. But Alberti also made his own spectacular advances in the art of painting and in engineering, and was responsible for some of the most exciting architectural designs in Italy. In this volume, Renaissance scholar Anthony Grafton offers the biography and cultural history that Alberti has long deserved. It is a compelling portrait of a mysterious and original intellectual
L'architettura. (De re aedificatoria) by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )
239 editions published between 1485 and 2010 in 8 languages and held by 970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Avec ce traité, L.B. Alberti, 1404-1472, se propose de remplacer le De architectura, de Vitruve. Il fait du travail de l'architecte un travail intellectuel, le concepteur d'un édifice n'étant pas nécessairement celui qui aura la charge de la direction du chantier. Il affirme aussi que la forme de l'édifice compte bien plus que la valeur des matériaux utilisés
Leon Battista Alberti : on painting : a new translation and critical edition by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )
118 editions published between 1485 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leon Battista Alberti was one of the most important humanist scholars of the Italian Renaissance. Active in mid-fifteenth-century Florence, he was an architect, theorist, and author of texts on perspective and painting. Leon Battista Alberti: On Painting is a cardinal work that revolutionized Western art. In this volume, Rocco Sinisgalli presents a new English translation and critical examination of Alberti's seminal text. Dr Sinisgalli reverses the received understanding of the relationship between the Italian and Latin versions of Alberti's treatise by demonstrating that Alberti wrote it first in Italian and then translated it into a polished Latin over the course of several decades. This volume is richly illustrated to help demonstrate how Alberti understood optics and art"--

Momus by Leon Battista Alberti( Book )
32 editions published between 1790 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Momus is the most ambitious literary creation of Leon Battista Alberti, the famous humanist-scientist-artist and "universal man" of the Italian Renaissance. In this dark comedy, written around 1450, Alberti charts the lively fortunes of his anti-hero Momus, the unscrupulous and vitriolic god of criticism. Alberti deploys his singular erudition and wit to satirize subjects from court life and politics to philosophy and intellectuals, from grand architectural designs to human and divine folly. This edition provides a new Latin text, the first to be based on the two earliest manuscripts, both corrected by Alberti himself, and includes the first full translation into English."--BOOK JACKET
