Serlio's great contribution was that his books were the first to present architectural theory in the form of a professional manual, specifically geared to needs of architectus, builders, and craftsmen. He was also one of the first to use high-quality illustrations to explain his text

  • Spec. Coll. copy (with call no. *Z233.I8 S488tu 1551): bound with Libro 3, Il terzo libro di Sabastiano Serlio Bolognese nel qual si figurano e descriuono le antiquita di Roma, e le altre che sono in Italia, e fuori d'Italia. In Venetia: Per Pietro de Nicolini da Sabbio, ad instantia di Marchione Sessa, MDLI [1551]; and Libro 5, Quinto libro d'architettura di Sabastiano Serlio, Bolognese....In Venetia: Per Pietro de Nicolini da Sabbio, ad instantia di Marchione Sessa, MDLI [1551]. Bound in contemporary blind-tooled pigskin boards; evidence of four pairs of ties (two pairs along fore-edges, one pair each at top and bottom edges); wide border of acanthus leaf and acorn roll above and below central panel; outer border of central panel contains portraits of saints and title "KUNST BUCH;" inner border of central panel comprised of medallion portrait roll of reformers Martin Luther, John Hus, Desiderius Erasmus, and Philip Melanchthon; central panel on upper board composed of two compartments with lily center-pieces and borders of small floral ornaments; central panel on lower board contains unidentified owner's name "IORC. HEINRI." By1586 the volume had moved from Germany to Italy where another owner inserted interesting and, in some cases, extensive manuscript annotations in Italian. In the 17th century the book apparently migrated north again into the possession of Iohannes Georgius (a doctor), whose family name and title (undecipherable) are faintly stamped in small letters at the top of the front panel; Georgius may possibly be the owner of the engraved bookplate on front pastedown featuring an elongated figure of a man with a long pointed beard wearing a crown, and the disembodied talons of a chicken or other bird. Purchase, Bruce McKittrick, 1990.
