First edition. Owner bookplate on front endpaper, jacket price clipped. 1980 Large Hardcover. xiii, 599 pp. The first large-scale study of early Renaissance Venetian architecture since the late 19th century. The work of all the major Venetian architects of the period 1460-1525 is included, with special attention to Pietro Lombardo and Mauro Codussi. An opening section on early and transitional works examines buildings by Antonio di Marco Gambello and Antonio Rizzo, among others, and the closing section, 'After Codussi,' discusses edifices built by Giorgio Spavento, Tullio Lombardo, Giovanni Buora, and Bartolomeo Bon. The book's full bibliography will appeal to scholars, while the glossary of architectural terms gives the nonspecialist access to the detailed examination of the various buildings.
