De architectura by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

184 editions published between 1486 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le De architectura de Vitruve, présenté à l'empereur Auguste et donc ±publié» dans les années 30-20 avant J.-C., est le seul des nombreux textes grecs et romains consacrés à l'art de bâtir à avoir échappé au naufrage de la grande tradition technique de l'Antiquité classique. Il fut considéré depuis l'époque carolingienne jusqu'au XVIIIe siècle comme une véritable bible dans sa spécialité. Rendre plus facile l'accès à son oeuvre nous a paru nécessaire, pour tous ceux qui, en amateurs, en étudiants ou en spécialistes, s'intéressent à l'architecture, à l'évolution des formes, des structures et des techniques, et plus généralement à l'histoire de l'art européen. Cette édition bilingue reprend intégralement le texte latin et la traduction française des dix volumes de la Collection des Universités de France, dont la publication s'est échelonnée sur quarante ans, de 1969 à 2009. Les notes, allégées, en ont été actualisées : elles intègrent les découvertes techniques ou archéologiques les plus récentes, et esquissent quelques-unes des perspectives nouvelles ouvertes dans le vaste domaine de l'architecture antique par les recherches de ces dernières décennies

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, ein römischer Militärtechniker und Ingenieur, verfasste mit "De architectura libri decem" - "Zehn Bücher über Architektur" das einzige bis heute erhalten gebliebene Werk der antiken Architekturtheorie. Die Bücher sind dem Kaiser Augustus als Dank für dessen Förderung gewidmet. Dieses Werk soll dem Leser einerseits ermöglichen, Bauwerke zu errichten, ihm andererseits auch helfen sie zu beurteilen und zu bewerten. Die zehn unterschiedlich gewichteten Bücher behandeln die historischen, ästhetischen und technischen Grundlagen der Architektur ebenso wie den Bau von Tempeln und Wohnhäusern sowie den Städtebau. Im neunten und zehnten Buch werden mit der Zeitmessung und dem Bau von Wasserhebemaschinen jedoch auch andere Techniken behandelt. Die "Zehn Bücher über Architektur" bieten die erste umfassende Behandlung der antiken Technik (Zeitmessung, Baumaschinen, Wasserräder, Kriegsmaschinen), Architektur und Raumgestaltung.

Vitruvius : the ten books on architecture by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

48 editions published between 1914 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, a Roman architect and engineer flourishing in the first century B.C., was the author of the oldest and most influential work on architecture in existence. For hundreds of years, the specific instructions he gave in his "Ten Books on Architecture" were followed faithfully, and major buildings in all parts of the world reveal the widespread influence of his precepts. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, he was "the chief authority studied by architects, and in every point his precepts were accepted as final. Bramante, Michelangelo, Palladio, Vignola, and earlier were careful students of the work of Vitruvius." His book is thus one of those rare works that have been supremely important in the creation of the greatest art masterpieces. 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 theater: its site, foundations, and acoustics; the proper style and proportion for private dwellings; the differences between the Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian styles; methods of giving durability and beauty to polished finishings; and many other topics that help us understand the methods and beliefs of the Roman architect. It is a direct, authoritative, and detailed introduction to the ancients' methods of construction, the materials of the architect, and the prevailing aesthetic beliefs of the times; but it is also a work of art. Vitruvius wrote in such a fascinating manner, and digressed from his subject so often (as, for instance, when he wrote about the winds, Archimedes in his bath, and why authors should receive awards and honors at least as often as athletes), that his book has had a continuing appeal to the general reader for many centuries. Besides being an instructive treatise on nearly everything connected with Roman and Greek architecture, it is an entertaining description of some aspects of the life and beliefs of the times. This edition is the standard English translation, prepared over a period of several years by Professor M.H. Morgan of Harvard University

The Architecture of Marcus Vitruvius Pollio, in ten books by Vitruvius Pollio( Book )

40 editions published between 1826 and 2014 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Active in the first century BCE, Marcus Vitruvius Pollio wrote his influential architectural treatise in ten books. It remained the standard manual for architects into the medieval period. The topics which Vitruvius considered essential are diverse, including aspects of design as well as geometry and engineering. In the nineteenth century, the English architect and author Joseph Gwilt (1784-1863) won greater acclaim for the books he published than for the buildings he designed. His most celebrated achievement, The Encyclopaedia of Architecture (1842), is also reissued in this series. Gwilt's one-volume translation of Vitruvius's Latin text was first published in 1826. Supplanting previous versions, this work was long regarded as the standard edition in English. It contains a brief life of Vitruvius as well as an annotated list of previous editions since the fifteenth century. A number of detailed illustrative plates accompany the text
