Riguardo questo articolo

Edition : First Edition, Contemporary vellum boards rebacked skillfully with period looking quarter calf. Spine in six heavily gilt compartments of five raised bands. Gilt title on brown calf label on two. , Nicola Zabaglia (1674-1750) was an Italian inventor, engineer and master mason. In 1686, he began working at the Fabbrica di San Pietro, where he showed a particular genius in designing and building machines and scaffolding for complex building assignments.His zeal for invention and the practicality that his inventions took on caused this book to be published. His many feats of brilliance were shown to the world and, partially because of this book, his practices were disseminated far enough and thought to be useful enough that they would stay in practice until the early 20th century. , Size : Folio (480x360mm). , Illustrated with 54 fine copper engraved plates showing Zabaglia?s methods of constructing and restoring edifices. Four of them are double page. Plates show mechanical devices, tools, scaffolds, and buildings. They also show the magnificent restoration of the Vatican obelisk in 1589 by Domenico Fontana. This was one of the most extraordinary feats of the Renaissance. It took 900 men, 150 horses and 47 cranes to accomplish the engineering feat. Title in Latin; preface and explanatory notes for plates in both Italian and Latin. , References : Berlin Kat. 2755; Cicognara 968; Riccardi ii, 642. Pollak Vol. IV:166., P. Endpapers.
