His work had a profound influence on the architecture of the 18th-century Habsburg Empire (Schloss Belvedere and Die Hofburg in Vienna; Schloss Mirabell in Salzburg; etc.). This particular volume was once owned by art donors Paul and Gabriele Geier. Paul Geier was with the US Embassy in Rome, where he and Gabriele became good friends with Bernard Berenson, owner of Villa I Tatti, which later became Harvard University's international center for research and scholarship in art history. The villa is renowned for its library, for which many of the funds were donated by the Geiers.
