In this famous work de Ville (1596-1656, possibly 1657 or 1658) concentrates on basic designs as starting point for detailed examination of practical questions, showing how established principles have to be adapted to the practical exigencies of any actual site. He discusses in detail matters such as length of line defense, length of flanks, casemates, size of the bastions, etc. Doing this, he quotes continually from existing practice, acknowledging this as a a matter of fact. Noteworthy, de Ville himself produced the fine, clear illustrations for the book. "Antoine de Ville, der 1596 zu Toulouse geboren, gegen die Hugenotten, wie im dreißigjährigen Kriege focht und mit 32 Jahren einen Traité de Fortification (Lyon 1628) herausgab. Diese Arbeit erhob nicht den Anspruch, eine neue Manier zu bieten, wohl aber und mit Recht den, die üblichen Formen und gute Beobachtungen eines Praktikers festzustellen. Denn so jung der Verfasser auch war: er hatte bereits wichtigen Belagerungen beigewohnt und viel gesehen." - Jähns, 1107.
