Original edition
A fine arts teacher and director of the “Accademia del disegno” in Perugia, Baldassarre Orsini (1732-1810), who was both a painter and an architect, writes a very useful dictionary for Architecture students, who could easily and clearly find out, in each single entry, history and technical features. He adds to this a specific dictionnary of vitruvian terms, to simplify the study of the still fundamental text, the “codex of master of architects”.

Only one copy in Iccu (but the only first volume).
