Comment on Argument_78
I found The book „De la distribution des maisons de plaisance“ by the French architect Jacques-François Blondel by the searching with the key word Nobles as my book Del palazzo de’ Cesari. Opera postuma” by Francesco Bianchini talks several times about the family of Farnese, a noble family of Rome.
As I read through the book, there were a lot of differences to mine.
First of all the book 78 is in french, while my book is in latin and italian.
Also the Book of Blondel is way more visual, it features drawings throughout the hole book, while most of the drawings in my book are more distributed towards the end.
Furthermore, Book 78 mostly features drawings of architectural details like statues, perspective drawings of gardens and facade details.
Moreover it features also more technical drawings like descriptions on the orders; „PROFILS DE L’ORDRE DORIQUE/ ATTIQUE/ INONIQUE“ or „DIVERS EXEMPLE DE PROPORTIONS DE FRONTONS“ which are examples of proportions for pediments.
One topic that surprised me is the range in which examples of fences for French Chateaus were covered in the book.
Comment on Argument 47
I found your book while searching the key word Rome, as my book „Del palazzo de’ Cesari“ is about the palaces of roman nobles.
Even-though topic wise there is not direct link to my book, I was fascinated by the book because I visited the Trajans column myself but never really looked at the engravings on the column itself.
Our books are also structured very differently, my book is mainly text in latin and italian and features drawings more towards during the end, while your book almost exclusively covers drawings.
Also the drawings of my book are generally more focussed on the architecture itself, while your book extensively covers the engravings on the Trajans columns – except for very few pages that show elevations of different parts of the column.
One minor difference is also that the layout of your book is horizontal while mine is vertical
