The book “De verborum Vitruvianorum Significatione” consists of two parts. The first part is organised in chapters. It is like an encyclopedia where words and ideas are explained and defined, where you can look up things. Each chapter begins with a capital letter in a bigger font size, according to the alphabet. The chapter is organised in paragraphs, where each paragraph begins with a term/word with the same initial letter as the chapter does. Each new word is written in capital letters, followed by some sentences in italic font and then alternating “normal” and italic fonts. In this part, there are a few illustrations that help to explain some of the terms more clearly. They are somewhere at the border of the page, next to the corresponding paragraph and are not numbered.
The second part consists of running text, organised in a few chapters. The headings of the new chapters are written in bigger font size and in capital letters. The running text is again in italic and normal font.
The first word of each page is repeated on a last line of the previous page.
