Traité De Perspective A L’Usage Des Artistes
By Jeaurat, Edme-Sébastien
This book is organized in chapters, each of which has a different heading. In each chapter the text is divided in columns. Each page has the title of the chapter it belongs to. When the chapter changes a line is drawn to divide them.
Throughout the text there are a lot of images especially architectural drawings. These images are scattered throughout the whole book and are presented in-text. Mostly pictures appear at the beginning and ending of each chapter/subchapter. You can also find a lot of perspective views which are full page images (especially in the second half of the book). Each of the images is numbered.
When describing a method, the author also uses schematics. They are an important part of the book as he uses them lot. The schematics have their own numeration and description. They are full page pictures.
In the book you can also find an analytic list of contents for the images/schematics with their tittles.
The images play a major part in this book as there are plenty of them (probably there are as many images as there is text).
The organization of text and images suggest that the book is supposed to be a handbook about perspectives. I came to that conclusion as the author doesn’t use a formal language but presents the text as a form of a dialogue, although he states that his conclusions are based on many scientifical facts and theories.
