Folio [33.5 x 21.5 cm], 404 pp., (12) ff., including architectural title, medallion portrait of Vasari on verso, and 83 woodcuts, of which 37 are full-page, plus 2 unsigned leaves which form upper extensions of the buildings pictured on A4v & Av5, bound following and preceding respective leaves (eg unmounted). Bound in 18th century half calf and patterned paper over boards, with calf corners, fore-edges marbled. Minor discoloration to small area of title. Ex libris of C.O. Riccati, most likely a relation of the mathematician Jacopo Francesco(1676-1754) on front end pastedown, and ownership inscription of the Jesuit college at Bologna on title. A few cuts printed to outer margin shaved. Pale waterstain to a few leaves, but generally a tall and fresh copy with good strikes of the cuts. Scarce, first illustrated edition and exceptionally fine copy of the first printed treatise on architecture (Latin editio princeps 1485), a learned amalgam of Vitruvius and 15th-century building practice generally regarded as establishing architecture as an independent subject. This is the second translation into Italian (first by Pietro Lauro, 1546), and its elegant Tuscan dialect and illustrations reflecting mid-sixteenth century building practice fundamentally fixed the text and its interpretation according to late Florentine Renaissance norms. Although the work¿s seminal place in the history of architectural theory has been unquestioned ¿ ¿perhaps the most significant contribution ever made to the literature of architecture¿ (Krufft)--, the lack of illustrations severely hampered its practical usefulness as a building manual, a fault remedied for the first time by the present edition. ¿Bartoli was in the service of the Church and the Medici for the greater part of his life: his friendship with Vasari may have established his patterns of taste. His fortunate inheritance of a group of 15th-century manuscripts, among them the writings of Alberti and the Zibaldone of Buonaccorso Ghiberti, caused him to undertake one of his major enterprises ¿ the translating of Alberti¿s De re aedificatoria, which despite its fame and probably because of its profundity, was seldom published. Bartoli¿s version is the first illustrated edition, and the second translation of his work¿The illustrations with their emphasis on contemporary building practice, and their simple even derivative character reflect mid-century concerns on relating practice to theory. The translation would become the standard edition of Alberti¿s treatise and the source of the eighteenth century Leoni folio edition.¿ ¿ Wiebenson I-15. * Fowler 6; Mortimer Italian 12; Wiebenson I-15; Judith Bryce, Cosimo Bartoli (1503-72).
