This is a remarkable work by Vitruvius Pollio that was created during the classical period and that influenced greatly the further development of the architecture. A number of outstanding sciences o. .Renaissance referred in their works to this book. The book includes not only data on architecture but also a great number of digressions from this topic. For example, here it is possible to find the paragraphs about different kinds of contemporary art which are also as valuable as the information about architecture ingenuously.

Vitruvius The Ten Books of Architecture by Marcus Vitruvius Pollio ( 80–15 BC) is the first complete treatise that we have on architecture. Reading it is an unmitigated source of joy for someone who has an amateur's interest in architecture or Roman history. People who have simply visited sites Roman buildings (Timgad, Rome, Nimes, or Pompeii) will also take a great pleasure in Vitruvius work as it explains so what of what one has seen at these places. Book VII Vitruvius sounds like old man whining on how new stucco paintings use too many bright and expensive colors and how everything was better in the past when the decorations and paintings were more realistic.

In his treatise on Roman architecture, Vitruvius Pollio declares that the qualities of a good building are “firmness, commodity, and delight.” “The Ten Books on Architecture” outlines building methods for everything from aqueducts and temples, to decorative plasterwork. Written in the first century BC, and dedicated to emperor Caesar Augustus, it is the only complete document of its kind.

This is a classic book that I just like to have on the shelf.
Leyl
Valuable work, especially for Freemasons, though this free editions lacks illustrations available in other still inexpensive editions
Dusar
Tedious but fascinating with dated prose perhaps due to dated translation. The kindle edition tragically has no illustrations which it should.
Monin
good reading
Cesar
Amazing
Buridora
A classic.

Not that the book isn't useful, but books on architecture must have images, and this edition does not. Why not try a new, image-filled, full length arhitecture e-book for $4.99 called ABODE?

ABODE (The Picture Dictionary of Home Construction and Residential Architecture)
Great Book. Was not dissapointed in the description given at time of auction and good service. Will definately buy again.
