Delphi Complete Works of Vitruvius (Illustrated)
The Roman engineer Vitruvius is the author of the celebrated treatise ‘De architectura’, a handbook for ancient architects. Vitruvius studied Greek philosophy and science and gained experience in the course of his professional work. Appointed to be an overseer of imperial artillery and military engines, he was architect of at least one unit of buildings for Augustus in the reconstruction of Rome. ‘De architectura’ is the only treatise on architecture to survive from antiquity and it has been regarded since the Renaissance as the first book on architectural theory, as well as the primary source on classical architecture. Delphi’s Ancient Classics series provides eReaders with the wisdom of the Classical world, with both English translations and the original Latin and Greek texts. This comprehensive eBook presents Vitruvius’ complete extant works, with illustrations, informative introductions and the usual Delphi bonus material.
