Vitruvius: the ten books on architecture by Vitruvius Pollio ( Book )
65 editions published between 1914 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The only full treatise on architecture and its related arts to survive from classical antiquity, De Architectura libri decem (Ten Books on Architecture) is the single most important work of architectural history in the Western world, having shaped humanist architecture and the image of the architect from the Renaissance to the present. Extremely influential in the formation of the medieval and modern concept of a broad liberal arts education as the basis for responsible professionals, this work is remarkable also because over half of its content deals with aspects of Hellenistic art, science and technology, music theory, law, artillery, siege machinery, proportion and philosophy, among other topics." "This new, critical edition of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture is the first to be published for an English-language audience in more than half a century."--Jacket

"In about 25 B.C. the Roman architect Marcus Vitruvius Pollio presented to the emperor Augustus ten scrolls that contained everything he knew about architecture. Synthesizing his studies of earlier Greek writings as well as lessons drawn from his own design career, the Ten Books on Architecture discussed architectural practice and education; building materials; the correct proportions and elements of the Ionic, Doric, and Corinthian; the design of temples, public buildings, and private houses; and engineering and military planning. More than two thousand years later his masterwork stands as both the most comprehensive architectural text of antiquity and one of the most important design treatises ever written."
