Its importance for the subsequent history of architecture is incalculable, yet this is the first English translation based on the original, exceptionally eloquent Latin text on which Alberti's reputation as a theorist is founded.
- Author BiographyRobert Tavernor is Professor and Head of Architecture at the University of Bath and a practicing architect. His previous books include a translation (with Joseph Rykwert and Neil Leach) of Alberti's On the Art of Building in Ten Books; and Palladio and Palladianism.
