Oversized; shipping charges will be more than standard for priority or international orders. "This translation...replaces the only other English version, that produced in 1611 by Robert Peake, whose source was not the original Italian, but a corrupt Dutch translation. As such, this is the first English translation of Serlio's work to be based on his own editions and the first collection in any language of all five books taken from Serlio's corrected originals. It represents a major step in the recognition of Sebastiano Serlio as the most important architectural writer of the sixteenth century. (Inventory #: 17722)
