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....

Place and date from Fowler. The 32 plates are type A in the Fowler table of editions, 1563-[1800]. In the Fowler entry it is suggested that there may have been two earlier issues of the first XXXII leaves only, in 1562 and 1563?, so the present copy may be 3rd issue

The t.p.'s and plates are worn impressions of those in Bernardino Oppi's ed. of 1635 with Marchetti's name substituted for Oppi's in the imprints (it remains in the dedication dated 18 Aug. 1635, leaf II). Engraved t.p. with port. of Vignola facing left

Engraved throughout. Architectural title leaf includes the arms of Cardinal Alessandro Farnese, to whom the work is dedicated, and the half-length port. of Vignola facing to the viewer's right. Plates are printed on one side of the leaf only, and are arranged in pairs on a verso and the facing recto. The 5 leaves at the end are from the series of 7 "Porte di Michel Angelo." Over 3 of the doorways are inscriptions relating to the Farnese
