144I I Quattro Libri dell’Architettura

The most important work on
Renaissance architecture, I Quattro
Libri dell’Architettura, was written
by Italian architect Andrea Palladio
(1508–1580) and published in 1570.
I Quattro Libri dell’Architettura (The
Four Books of Architecture) comprise
the four illustrated volumes in which
Palladio outlined his views about the
nature and practice of architecture
and the purity and simplicity of the
classical style. The books detailed
systematic rules on architecture for
both appearance and construction of
elements such as walls, frames, ceilings,
stairs, doors, columns, roofs, details
and windows. The books influenced
architects such as Inigo Jones,
Christopher Wren and Thomas Jefferson.

Pictured is a portrait of
Andrea Palladio (top); the
frontispiece of the first
edition of I Quattro Libri
dell’Architettura (above);
and an illustration from
the 1736 English edition
of the same book (right).
