The book consists of numerous paragraphs. The format is almost always the same. Body of text followed by some illustrations here and there. Nevertheless, some exceptions occur (example: cursive letters). The title and the page number can be found in each headnote of the book. There is a title page followed by a brief introduction or explanation, as I believe the author is naming it in the book. The paragraphs are separated by illustrations and new chapters/subtitles. Even though I used the word chapters there are no chapters as such. More so the topics of the paragraphs can be derived by looking at the illustrations surrounding them. With different fonts and subtitles emphasis is given in relation to the illustrations appearing all over the book. These illustrations come in different sizes. Some only take little space in between two paragraphs, while others take up the whole page. The illustrations are mostly lettered to deepen the information delivered by the author. The design of the illustrations is kept pretty minimalistic, to on one hand create an exact statement and on the other hand not to distract the reader with any complex and/or artistic drawings.
The organisation of text and images suggest, that this book covers an academic study on different types of pedestals, columns and statues. The author ”Bernardino Baldi” gives insight into his studies of Vitruvius and his Work. He tries to compare the lectures of Vitruvius with the actually built buildings surrounding him. In the previous task I have examined the book “DE VERBORVM VITRVVIANORUM SIGNIFICATIONE’’, which seemed to be further literature regarding this book ”Scamilli impares Vitruvianii”. The book “DE VERBORVM VITRVVIANORUM SIGNIFICATIONE” is also written by the same Author ”Bernardino Baldi”, and even tries to give insight on Vitruvius life & career. This supports the assumption, that this book was meant to educate people, about Vitruvius’s work and moral beliefs.
