The book cover is made of dark red leather with concise pattern and “VITRUVIUS ARCHTECTURE” of golden font at the spine. The papers are yellowing and somewhere with handwriting, full of age, but the printing is still clear and of high quality.
The book is orderly divided into preface, catalog, main content and annotations. It consists of totally ten books. The first book is consisting of 9 chapters, the second of 10 chapters, the third of 3 chapters, the fourth of 8 chapters, the fifth of 12 chapters, the sixth of 11 chapters, the seventh of 14 chapters, the eighth of 7 chapters, the ninth of 9 chapters, the tenth of 21 chapters.
The height of the book is 380 mm, the breadth 253 mm and the width 37 mm. Therefore, I’d relate to the traditional book size “Folio”.
The book has 356 pages in total and 158 illustrations.
