Subject Tolomei, Claudio, 1492-1555--Correspondence Authors, Italian--16th century--Correspondence Italy--Intellectual life--16th century WorldCat no. 25544589 for reference. In a very interesting letter to Count Agostino de Landi, dated November 14, 1542, Tolomei outlines the activity and goals of the Roman Accademia della Virt?, originally established to implement the transposing of literary forms, grammar and vocabulary from classical Latin to modern Italian. After 1539 the academy, then composed of grammarians, philologists, antiquarians and archaeologists, turned to the study of Vitruvius treatise on architecture. According to Tolomei s letter, the academy had formulated an eight-point program: 1) a Latin commentary on the difficult passages of Vitruvius, 2) a new critical edition of Vitruvius, 3) a Latin lexicon of terms used in Vitruvius, 4) a Greek lexicon of terms used in Vitruvius, 5) an edition of Vitruvius rewritten in good Latin style, 6) a translation of Vitruvius text into Tuscan with a lexicon of Tuscan terms, 7) a collection of the principles and examples taken from Vitruvius, 8) the study of the ancient buildings of Rome, and of its sculpture, medals, works of hydraulic and military engineering. Despite the removal of this group from active participation in architecture, it may have had considerable impact on the establishing of the selective methodology and the intellectual rigor of later architectural theoreticians Description To Follow Shortly. 7" X 5" Very Good, Condition Bright, Crisp And Tight.

"Shahnama". 48 paintings 550+ Leafs, 1100+ Pages, and numerous other illustrations. This is a volume bound in a conservation binding, labeled and one of the few copies this complete offered in a hundred years. The price is negotiable. Pictures of all the paintings and most of the text and colophon are available on request. This volume has been in a private collection for decades and we have as yet found no other offering of it for sale anywhere in the 20th century. Most of the pages and all of the paintings are in very good condition, some of the text pages have been professionally conserved and backed to stabilize them. It is highly unusual to come across a copy of the Shahnama as complete as this. The exact number of verses covered has yet to be determined. We are interested in any informed feedback anyone would like to offer. The volume will go up for sale sometime this year. We have provenance going back to the turn of the century.
