One of history's most published architectural treatises, this Renaissance volume solidified the architectural canon of the past five centuries. The distinguished architect known as Vignola identified the five orders -- Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian, and Composite -- and illustrated them in full-page elevational detail. Accessible even to lay readers.
