Autor and title: Johann Rudolph Feasch, Des Jacobi Barozzi von Vignola Grund Regel
general infos from the physical book:
The book is very fragile from the very first touch; the pages are made of an old type of paper of various thicknesses, some thick and some thin.
It consists of a hard cover with no pictures and a large number of miniatures and technical drawings inside. In fact, this book is about the basic rules of Renaissance mathematical perspective.
specific page: 1
this image, which is the first in the book, shows a large and detailed architectural structure characterised by a mathematical Renaissance perspective. This image struck me because it immediately represents the essence of this book, namely the study of architectural perspective.
What we see in this image is a half-bust that I imagine represents Jacopo Barozzi and all around we see several references to classical structures and the foundations of Vitruvian architecture

This page explains one of the fundamental rules of architectural perspective, which is characterised by a simple set of languages. This concept struck me because in its simplicity it lays the foundations for the entire architectural structure.
