Erste Ausgabe; eine der wenigen theoretischen Abhandlungen des 17. Jahrhunderts in Italien. "Capra does not consider architecture as the art of building but as a science with a strong engineering aspect. In his work he provides the embryonic theoretical distinction between architecture and building. The singularity of Capra's works lies in the localized quality of his references and his focus on the technical aspects of architecture; all his precepts are technological... The treatise on civil architecture is divided into five parts corresponding to the five orders of architecture, but this is a purely symbolic arrangement, since Capra is not interested in the traditional norms and precepts of architectural theory focused on columns" (Millard). "The first folding plate gives a method for drawing a broken pediment, the second a machine for irrigating fields" (Fowler). - Vereinzelt leicht gebräunt bzw. minimal fleckig; die letzte Lage im Falz gering restauriert. Insgesamt wohlerhalten. - Riccardi I/1, 234; Fowler 79; Millard IV, 27; Ornamentstichkatalog 2752
