The book “Varie inventioni per depositi” by Bernardino Radi is stored in the Library Werner Oechslin in Einsiedeln.
The book consists of several copperplate engravings. There is one illustration on each page. The 28 pages of the book aren’t organised in any chapters. Except of a few descriptions on some illustrations, there is no text consistent in the book. The copperplate engravings depict different dressers as the title of the book reveals. Depending on the illustration there is the term “Moduli” or “Pedes” added. The book is in Italian. Sometimes there are pictures shown in the “invenzioni” but in some illustrations there are only some hatched areas. What the illustrations all have in common are the level of detail as well as the proportions and perspective. The size of the illustrations fit the size of the book pages and they are depicted frontally. Radi doesn’t use any explanation or introduction for the book. He presents the illustrations to the reader one after another in no specific order.
The size of the book is 265 millimetres on the short side and 395 millimetres on the long side. The height of the book is 7 millimetres. For that the size category of the book is “Folio”.
