Abstract

There are 27 titles relating to Andrea Palladio (1508-1580) in Special Collections, including Descriptio Brevissima Priscae Urbis Romae (1544), his famous I Qvattro Libri dell ‘Architettvra (1581), and an English version called The Elements of Civil Architecture (1864). Palladio is very important in the history of Western architecture, and was well known for his designs of villas. This limited edition publication by The Old School Press of Palladio’s Homes (2009) was a certainty for inclusion. Colourful, with a bi-lingual text, it offers succinct Palladian principles of design and form on the domestic home. Villa Godi (Vicenza) was one of the first projects undertaken by Palladio; it is now designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
