The French translation of Scamozzi's Idea della architettura universale (Venice 1615, q.v.) was first published in 1713 in Leyden by Pierre Vander Aa, who signed the dedication and whose catalogue of books, maps and engravings is printed on pages 274-276. The present edition is a reissue of the text and plates of the 1713 edition with the engraved title-plate omitted; it contains abridged translations of books 3 and 6, the illustrations from books 1--2 and 8, and additional woodcuts and engraved plates prepared for earlier Dutch editions. The engraved plates were drawn by Jan Goeree (1670--1751) and engraved by P. Sluyter and Jacob Baptist. BAL, Early printed books, no. 2920.
