The review, here reprinted in a full text version, discusses two books by Luigi Vagnetti published in 1978 and 1979. The first book, 2000 anni di Vitruvio, constitutes a complete bibliography of editions of Vitruvius’ treatise on architecture, with commentary and analysis. The second book, Prospettiva, is also a bibliographical work, listing and discussing perspective treatises and studies of perspective. The review considers the tradition of illustrations to editions of Vitruvius’ text and the relationship between perspective and architecture.
