Studies in Italian Renaissance architecture
Cambridge & London, MIT Press, 1981
(23 cm), xxiv (2), 220 pp., 130 illustrations. Publisher’s pictorial wrappers. - Collection of seven essays demonstrating the importance of architectural drawings for the study of Renaissance architecture (some in new translations, revised by the author, with postscripts “of important publications that have appeared since mine”), accompanied by “Bibliography 1938-1974 Wolfgang Lotz” and “Introduction” by James S. Ackerman. “These pieces are so significant, so rich in implications, and so compressed stylistically that anyone working in the area must read them again and again” (from a review by Sara Ruth Watson, in Technology and Culture, volume 19, 1978, pp.531-533). Reissue in wrappers of the MIT Press edition, 1977. ¶ Very good, unmarked copy.
