This book by Lorenzo Sirigatti covers the same topic as “La perspective, avec la raison des ombres et miroirs” by Salomon de Caus. Both intend to teach the reader the way of perspective drawing. They were even published only sixteen years apart. They follow the same concept: Theory sections followed by example drawings. The book by Salomon de Caus has less drawings than the book by Sirigatti since the other book has a second book with just drawings. However the one big difference between those two books is the language. One is in Italian the other in French. Interestingly, both books are addressed to a prince.
“Le due regole della prospettiva pratica” by Giacomo Barozzi da Vignola shares some similarities with the book “La perspective, avec la raison des ombres et miroirs” by Samuel de Caus. The main theme of the two books is perspective drawing and its techniques. They both display 2D and 3D drawings. In terms of structure, both books have the same concept: text explaining the theory and one or more drawings as examples. Their publication years are 29 years apart. So Salomon de Caus may have used this book as a basis for his work. However, this book is in Italian and the book by Salomon de Caus is written in French
