Most of the drawings are copies made after originals in private collections, and after prints published in books or circulated as broadsides. There are 7 buildings drawn by Honorati after measurements taken by eye on site. All the drawings have captions listing the name or type of building, the place, the destination or owner, the...

The first 32 plates are close to Fowler's type A, the plates from the original ed. of 1563, but most differ in details from Fowler's description. Type A also comprises the later Roman eds. of Vaccarius (1607-1610) and Rossi (ca. 1617). The present ed. includes the seven plates of the "Porte di Michel Angelo" (nos. 38-44) and the plate of the five orders (no. 3), all of which probably first appeared in Orlandi's ed. of 1602; see Fowler. It is therefore probable that the present ed....
