Basel, Sebastian Henricpetri, 1614. 34x20. XXXII+614 pp. Ca 190 engraved illustrations including 27 full-page. An attractive copy albeit the paper is browned on the printing surface; in a binding with contemporary vellum spine and old vellum-like boards, later leather tie-strings.

Fourth, final edition of the German translation of Vitruvius's Ten Books on Architecture (De Architectura libri decem), made by Walther Hermann Ryff (or Riff, Reiff, etc., latinized as Rivius). More than 100 of the illustrations were drawn from Cesare Cesariano's annotated Italian Vitrivius edition, which adhered to the wealth of forms of northern Italy - an advantage for Ryff and his goals, since it indicated that Vitruvius was not just an item of Classical Antiquity, but a work of and for the present time. Ryff's translation, first published in 1548 as 'Vitrivius Teutsch', made this canon of Renaissance architecture accessible to master builders in German-speaking countries who, as a rule, had no command of Latin. The importance of Ryff's German Vitrivius for the establishment of Renaissance architecture north of the Alps can scarcely be overestimated. Berlin Cat. 1812.
