The Ten Books on Architecture
Classic work by the great Roman architect and engineer Vitruvius. This is one of the most influential works on architecture in existence. For hundreds of years the specific instructions in the 'Ten Books' were followed faithfully and major buildings in all parts of the world reveal the widespread influence of his ideas. Vitruvius describes the classic principles of symmetry, harmony and proportion in architecture; the design of the treasury, prison, senate house, baths, forum and temples: the construction of the theatre - its site, foundations and acoustics: and the differences between Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian styles. This edition includes diagrams, plans, and illustrations based on Vitruvius's writings.
