The first book I choose for this exercise is called “Lucidum Perspectivae Speculum” from the post “Greetings_67”. The reason being the similarities in physical characteristics. At first sight it seems that both books have the same dimensions. They are rather large in length and width. In terms of thickness, by taking a closer look one will notice that my book contains about 130 pages more. But in comparison to other books which are mostly bound in a rather thicker monochrome brown leather cover, our books have a light-coloured leather cover supplemented by paper. Even though mine has a pattern on it and the other one more of a marble look, both stand out because of their colours.
Next, I went through the texts from task 2 and found the post “Argument_88”. The name of the book being discussed is “Universae Architecturae Civilis Elementa” and it is written by Christian Rieger. I choose this specific book because this time it shares similar editorial characteristics with mine. The books were written in Latin and consist of 300 to 350 pages. Both of them were published in the 18th century: mine 1739 and this one 17 years later, in the year 1756. In addition, I think the books also resemble one another regarding the illustrations. The pictures seem to be drawn with the same technique and used to demonstrate architectural constructions.
