Ovaine ambition of mine owneDefire, much lefle prefumption of 
my none Defert,incited me to prefent this Volume to your Princejy 
view 5 but rather, the gracious Countenance, which (euen from your 
Childehood) youhaueeuerdaigned to all good endeauours, invited 
Mee alfo (after fo many others) to offer at the high-Altar of yout 
Highnefle fauour, this new-Naturalized VVorke of a learned Stran- 
ger : Not with pretence of Profit to your HighnefTe ( who want not 
more exquifite Tutors in all excellent Sciences) but,vnderthe Patronage of your power- 
ful! Name, to benefite the Publicke; and conuay vnto my Countrymen (efpecially Ar- 
chitects and Artificers of all forts ) thefe Neceflary , Certaine, and moll ready Helps of 
Geometrie : The ignorance and want whereof, in times paft (in moft parts of this King- 
dome) hath left vs many lame VVorkes, with fhame of many Workemen; which, for 
the future, the Knowledge and vfe of thefe Inftru&ions mail happily preuent, if the euent 
butanfwere(inanymeafure) to that Hope of mine, which alone both induced this Defire 
and produced this Defigne: Wherein I muft confefle my part but fmall,fauing my great 
aduenture in the Charge, and my great Good-will to doe Good . All which, together 
with my beft Seruices , I humbly proftrate at your Princely feete, as befeemes 

Your Highneffe 

moft humble Seruant 

Itybert Tea{e, 

To the Loners of Architecture. 

Vr learned Author Sebaftian Serly, hauing great forefight to flew and ex-* 
■thine the common rules of 'Architecture ; did Jirfl publifi his Fourth Booke-, 
entreating of Architecture, and after his Third Bo oke, declaring excellent An- 
tiquities. Fearing that ifhee had begunne with Geometrie and Perjpectiue, 
common workmen would haue thought ( that the two former although fmall) 
had not beene fo needefull to fludie andprattife as the other : Which friendly 
Reader, considered, hindered mee long either fromTranJlating or Pubtiflringthe two former, being 
perjwaded by Jundry friends and workemen,to haue defifled my purpofe, both fromtranflatingor 
publijhing . The which / hadfurely effected, if I had beene ouer-ruled by their requefis and 
perfwafions) alleadging flrong reafons, that the common Workemen of our time Vwtle regarded or 
ejieemed to Worke with right Simmetrie : the which is confuted and erronious, in the iudgement 
of the Learned Architect:, if they will follow the Order of Antiquities hereafter enfuing. Where- 
fore leafi my good meaning, together with my Labour in Translating and PublifJnng , [hould not 
be regarded and cfleemed ( as worthie ) confidering it not onely tendeth to the great profit of the 
Architect or Workeman, but alfo generally to ail other Artificers of our Nation : I aduife all gene- 
rally, not to deceiue themfelues, nor to be felfe-conceited in their owne worke s, but well ynder- 
Jland this my labour (tending to common good) and be per (waded that who fo fiall follow thefe 
rules hereafter fet downe,JhaU not onely haue his Worke well ejieemed of the commonpeople,but 
aljo generally commended and applauded of all workemen,and men of iudgement. Vale.

Lthoughthefubrilland ingenious Arte of Perfpec'tiueis very difficult andtroublefomctofet 
downein writing, and Specially the body,ormodell of things, which are driwen out of the

fpokenof Geometry, without the which Pcrfptctiue Artcisnothing? ] will labour in the brie- 
feft manner that I can in this my fecond Booke, to fhewe the wotketnanfo much thereof, that hce (hall bee

In this worke I will not troublemy klfe^c^dijpUit^pbHoXojphicaHx whafPerrpecliuc is , or from whence 
it hath the originall : for learned Eucftda writeth' darkeiy of trie fpeefllatiorrrhereof.

> all things haue their beginning, The fecorid]ineistha^,whichgc*thor reachethto the point, which fome 
call light, others, the horifon: But the horifon is the tight name thereof, for the horifon is in euery place 
wherclocuer fight endcth. The thirdlinCjiS the liheof the diftances, which ought alwayes to ftandfo high 4 
asthehoulon is farre orneerejaccordingtothefituation.aswhcntimcferueth.I willdeelaire. 

This Horifon is to be vnderftood to (fond at the coiners of our fight , as it the workeman would fhew 
a piece of woikc againft a flatwall, taking his begtnnfeig from the gnuuud, where the feetc of the beholders 
fhould ftand. In fuchicileit is requifite,thatthe Horifon fhould. bee as highas our eye, and the diftanCc 
to (ee or b:hold that worke, fhalloe frt or placed in the fitted pfaee thereabouts, as if it Were in a Hall, or a ; ?

tedipusos vnpleafant vntoyou: for the longer or the wyder thedifhmccis, the worke will fhew fo much 

But it you Will begin a pieceof wetke of fiue-pr fixe footc high from thegroufrd whereon you ftand,then 
i ii is ftquifite that the Horifon fliould ftand eucn with your eyes (as I fayd bcforep^it if; a man fhould fee bo

The fourth Qbapter, 

M ong all the ancient building to bee feene in Rome, I am of opinion, that the 
Pantheon (for one piece of worke alone) isthefayrcfi, whokft, andbeft to 
be vnder flood; and is fo much the more wonderfull then the reft , becaufe it 
hath fo many members, which are all focorrefpondent one to the other, that 
whofoeuer beholdeth it,taketh,great pleafurc therein,which proceedeth from 
this, that the excellent workeman, which inuented it , chofe the pcrfiteft 
forme, that is, the round forme, whereby it is vfually called, Our Lady of the 
Round : for within, it is as high as it is broad. And it may be, that the fay d 
workeman, confidering, thatarlthingsproceeding orderly, haueaprinripall 
and onely head, whereon the nether parts depend, was of opinion, that this 
pieceot worke fhouM haue onely but one light, and that, in the higheft part thereof, thatitmight fpread 
abroad in all places alike,as in erfecl you fee it doth: for belides other things which haue their perfed light, 
there axe fixe Chappels, which ( for that they {land within the thickncfle of the wall) fhould be darke, yet 
they haue their due light, by the meanesof fomedrawingwindowes, aboue in the top of the fayd Chap- 
pels, which giue them kcond light, taken from the vppermoft hole, fo that there is notany fmall thing 
in them , but it receiueth a part of the light , (and this is not made without great Judgement ■ ) for this 
Temple, inold time, beingdedicated to all the gods, by which mcanes there flood many Images in it, 
(which the diuers Tabernacles, Seates, and fmall windowesfhewj itwasneceffary that eueryonehadhis 
due light. Wherefore fuchastakepkafuretomakelrrsges, ard other imbeffed or grauen worke, rnufl 
confider, that fuch a Cabinet fhould haue his light from aboue, that euery one, (landing in his place, neede 
not looke for light to fee, but that they may bee feene altogether at one time. Eut to cemeromy firfl 
fpeach ; For that the Pantheon feemeth vnto roc to be t he perfedefi pecce of worke that eucr I fa w,there« 
fore I thought it good to fet it firft in the beginning of this Booke, andfcraprincipallheadof all other 
peeces of worke. The founder of this Ten-p!e (as P//»/« writeth in more then one place) was CWarcus 
c^«/»/»4,toaccomplifh ^ugujiusCafarsXz^. will,w ho being intercepted by death- could not firsifb it : andl 
fb it was built about foureteene yeeres after the byrthof our Lord, whichis about 5203. yeeres fromthe 
beginning of the world, 

In this Temple ( as Pliny writeth) the Capitals were of Copper; and hee writeth alfo, that Diogenes, the 
Image-maker of Athens, made the excellent Cara&et s in the Pillars, and that the Images placed aboue the 
Frontefpicium were much commended, although by the highneffe of the place they could not be fo well 
Eraperoar Traian t which was about 113. yeeres afterthebyrth of Chriff, and in the 5311* yeere of the 
creation of the wotld : and Lucius Septimus Seucrus, and CMircu* Aurelius Antonius, repayredit agayne, 
With all the Ornaments thereto belonging, as it appeareth in the Archinaue of the fayd frame ; which Or- 
naments, you muftprefume, were all new made s otherwife the Caraders of Diogenes would frill baus 
bene feene there. But in truth, the workman that made it,was very iudicions and conftant; for that he pro. 
portioned the members thereof very iudicioufly to the body, and would not fupprefTethcworkewith 
many cuttings: but as I willfhew, when timeferueth, how to place and deuide them excellent well. 
Alfo, in all the worke, hee hath obferued the worke of Corinth, and would mixc no other wi'hits and 
withall, the meafuresofall the members are as well obfetued as euer I faw or meafurcd in any other peece 
of worke, whereby wc may call this Temple an example of workemanfhip. Butleauing this matter (for 
that it giueth the workeman little, orno inftruclion to the purport Iwillproceede to the particular mea- 
sures: andthat I may goe forward orderly in the fe Antiquities 1, the fiift Figure fha'I be the Ichnography.

This Figure following is the Ichnography, that is, the ground of the Temple aforefayd, which is meafu- 
red fay the ancient, or old Romifti Palmes placed along by the fide hereof. And firir, fpcaking of the Por- 
tall, whereof the Columnes are 6. Palmes & 29. minutes thicke. The Intcrcolumnes (which arerhefpa- 
ces from one Columne to another) arc 8. Palmes and 9. minutes : the breadth of the Portall is 40. Palmes: 
the breadth of the flat Pillars of the Portall, is like the Diameter of the Columnes : the breadth of the Seates 
betweene the Pillars,is 10. Palmes: and the Pilafters on the fides are 2. Palmes: the widcheffe of the Gates 
is 2tf . Palmes and a halfe >• the widenefleof the whole Templefthat is.of the Floore within, from one wall 
to another) is iP4« Palmes: and iuftfo much is the height from the Floore to the vndermoft ftone of the 
window abouc. The fayd round hole is 30", Palmes and a halfe broad : each of the fixe Chappels 
that are made within the thickneffe of the wall, are25.Palmes , and 30. minutes j and goe halfe as deepe 
intothewallasthethickneffcof the fourefquare Pillars on each fide. Butthe principall Chappell is thir- 
tie Palmes broadband alfo is an halfe Circle, befides the Pillars aforefayd. The thicknefle of the Columnes 
of all the Chappels, is 5. Palmes, 3 . minutes lefle : the fourefquare corner Pillars alfo of the fayd Chappels, 
contay ning as much. The Columnes of the Tabernacle betweene the Chappels are two Palmes thicke .• the 
thicknefle of the wail that goeth round about the whole body of the Temple, is 3 1 . Palmes. And although 
that the Chappels make the walles hollow, yet betweene them there are hollow places made within the 
walles, which fomc fay, were left for places to receiue wind,becaufc of earthquakes. But lam of opinion, 
that they were left fo vnfilled,to fpare ftuffe.becaufe they are made circlewife, and are ftrong inough. The 
going vpjWhich you fee here on the left fide,was alfo on the right fide, to go vp the Portall : men alfo went 
from thence round about the Tcmple,ouer the ChappeIs,through a fecret way,which is yet there.* through 
the which alfo , they went without on thefteps, to clime vp into the higheft parts of the buildings, with 
many goings vp which are round about it. It is thought, that this foundation was all one mafle otlumpe, 
and without, many places hollow, fothatfome neighbours marking it, and feeking to build, haue found 
fucha foundation when they digged. 

This is the old Romilh Palme, which is deuided into twelue fingers, and each finger 
is deuided into foure parts, which are called Minutes, by the which 
mealure this prcfent Figure, with all the parts following, 
was meafured.

Seh/lian Serlius to t/be ^Reader. 

LOuingand friendly Reader, after I had collected certaine rules of Archite^ur^thinking that not only 
thofeof deepe conceyt would vaderftand them, butthatalfb each indifferent man of wit might con - 
ceaucthem,ashe is more or leffe addicted to fuch an Art; which rules are deuided into feuea Books, 
as hereunder (hall be fet downe: but for that this Artrequireth it, therefore I thought it rcquifite to begin 
with this fourth Booke, and to fet it out, firft, which is more to thepurpofe, andmore neceflary then the 
ted, for the knowledge of many forts of Building and ornaments thereof , to thecndthat eueryonc may 
haue fome knowledge of this Art, the which is no leffe pleafing to the mind of thofe workmen that thinke 
vponthingsthatarctomake,thenalfotomenseyeswhentheyarernade. Which Art,by thewifedome 
of the famous and excellent fpirits that are now in the world, doth flourifhin thefc dayes, astheLatine 
tongue did in the time of Ittlius Cefar , and Ctcert. Then with glad and ioyfull heart receyue at lead my 
good will j (though the effect enfucth not; which, in trueth, I haue (toplcafure and fatisficyoUr minds) 
in this refpcft. 

Inthefud Booke, I will entreat of the beginning of Gcometry.and of diuers cuttings through of lines, 
in fuch fort } that the workman may yeeld reafon for that he worketh. 

In the fecond Booke, I will fhc w in £igure,and by rsafon, as much of Perfpcdtiue Art,that if the worke* 
man will, he may declare his conceyt or purpofe, by rcafons and figure. 

In the third Booke, workmen fhall fee the Ichnographie, that is, the ground .• the Orthographie, that is, 
the rayfing vp of a Building before. The Seenographie or Sciographie,that is, the infight, by fhortcning 
of the mod part of the Buildings that are in Rome, Italie, &c. diligently meafured, and fet by them in 
Writing, with the places where they are, and their names. 

In the fourth, which is this, I will fpeake of flue rriancr of Buildings, and of their ornaments, as Thu£ 
fcana, Doric*, Ionica , Corinthia and Compofita, that is to fay, mingled. And by thefe, the whole Arte 
is learned. 

In the fift, I will fpeake of diuers kinds of Temples, fet downe in diuers formes, that is, round, foure- 
fquare jfix-cornetd,eyght-corherd,Oual!-wifc,and o:ofle-wife,with their ground, heights and fhortenings, 
diligently meafured. 

In thefixt.l will fpeakeof all dwellings, which, at this day,may bee vfed, beginning at the meaneft 
houfe or cottagcand (o from degree to degree, proceeding to the mod rich, fay te and princely Palaces, as 
Well in Countrie villages , as in great Cities or Townes. 

In the fcuenth andlaft, fhall be fct downe many accidents, which may happen toworkeaien in diuers 
places, ffrangc raaner of fituation,repayring of decayed houfes, and how we fhould helpe our felucs with 
pieces of other buildings, with fuch things as are to be vfed, and at other times haue flood in worke. 

Now then, to proceed readily herein, I will begin with the greateft and rudicke order of Building, that 
tS| the Thufcan, being the pfay[ie(t ; rudeft, and ftrongeft , and of lead grace andfecmelincfle.

[*f (be Safes or Bafement, jhouldbe the halfe of the tbicknefje of the Columne, which (halt bee deutded into two equall

halfe circle-, and thofe parts of the circle outwards, you fbillfet below, in as many euen parts as the two third parts of the. 
Columne holdctb: which being dene on both fides ,then there Jhallbe as many Paralels or croffe tines, drawenfrom the one 
poynt of thehulfe circle to the other, each line being marked with number, from the top downtwards , and the like vpon 
the lynesthat deuidethe Co/umnes; which numbers being orderly flaetd_ then it is certayne, that the firjl line fhall agree 
with the tbinneftpdrt of the Cclumne aboue : after jtaketheftcondline of the balfecircle, and fit it vpon the fecond line

The maner of Dorica, and the Ornaments thereof. 

The fixt Qhapter. 

THe Ancients (as we haue heard.) confidering the (late of their gods,ordained Dorica worke,and de- 
dicated the fame to Jupiter } <JHarSj and Hercules; but we build Temples , and dedicate them to Chrijl , 
Paul Gregory, and fuch holy perfonages , that were not onely profefled Souldicrs , but alfo valiantly 
and boldly loft their hues, and (hed their bloud for the faith of CHRIST* All fuch belong to Dorica, 
and not to their gods onely, but to men of armes,and ftrongperfonages, being of qualitic more or lcfic : 
for whom, if a workeman make or build honfes or palaces, they muft be Dorica : and the nobler the man 
is for whom fuch worke is done, the ftronger and ftatelyer they ought to be ; and the more effeminate that 
they are, the more (tenderer and pleafanter the building (hall be, as I will (hew when time (cructh. But 
now we will come to the mancrof the worke. Vitrmim Ipeaketh of this Dorica worke,in his fourth Booke 
and thud Chapter: but touching Bafes of Columnes, hec ipeaketh thereof in his third Booke, although 
foroe are of opinion, that he fpeaketh & meaneth of the Safes of Corinthia, for that they haue bene much 
vfed on the Corinthia Columnes , and Ionica, And fornealfo thinke,that Dorica Columnes had no 
BafeSi hauing refpefl: to many ancient buildings; as the Theater of CWarcellui, one of the fayreft workes in 
Italy t being the middle downewards Dorica ; which Columnes had no Bafes, the body of the Columnes 
rcfting vpon a ftep, without any other fupport. There is at Career Tulliano the fignes of a Doricall Tem- 
ple,the Columnes whereof are without Bafes. You mayalfofeein Verona an Arch iryumphant,of Dorica 
worke, where the Columnes are without Bafes. Neuerthelefle, for that wotkemen haue in former times 
made the Corinthia Bafes inanothcr man«,aslwiil (hew hereafter .• Therefore I affirm e, thattheBafes 
Atticurga, which Vitrmiusjn his third Booke, fo namcth, are the Dorica Bafes ; and this wee fee, Bramant 
hath ob/erued in his Buildings which he made in Rome: which Bramant 7 being the light and Inuentor of 
goodand true Architecture, which from Antiquitie to his time fbeingvnderPope/»/«« thefecondj had 
beene hidden, we ought to beleeue. Then this Eafe of Dorica (hall be the height of halfethethickneffe 
of a Columne.- the Plin thus the third part of his height: of the reft there fhalbe foure parts made; one fhall 
be for theThorus aboue; the other three fhall be fet in*, cuen parts: the ok for theThorus aboue, thefe- 
cond for the Trochile or Scotia: but the fame being deuided in feuen parts, one part (hall be the vppcrmoft 
lift, and another the vodermoft. TheProieclure or bearing out of theBafe,fhallbccf halfethe height, 
andfofliallthePlinthusof each Facie hold a thickneflc and a halfe of the Columne, Andif theBafeftan- 
deth below oar fight, the corner vnderthevpperHioftThorus, (being of it (elfc darkened J ought to bee 
fomewhat lower then the other. Butii the Bafeftandeth aboue our fight, the corner aboue the nether- 
moftThorus(alfoof it felfe darkened J fhall be greater then the other. Thereto alfo the Scotia, darkened 
by theThorus, in fuch cafe fhalbe made more then the meafure appoynted. And in fuch cafes the worke- 
man muft be iudicious and wary, as '/itruuius would haue him to bee learned in the Mathematicall fcience, 
that doth ftudy his Booke.

&c\ But we that are Chriftians.hauing a Temple to make of rhis worke, we will dedicate it 
tofuchSaintsasareofnature.cythcrweakcorftrong: fo likewife, common workes are fit 
for peaceable people, men, neyther great workemen, nor all too fimple in workemanfhip : 
and luch workemen are fitted for fuch worke. Now let vs come to the meaiures : the Ionica Columne, 
by a common rule, muft be of 8. parts, with Capitall and Bafe: although that Vitruum fay th,it muft be of 
8.partsandanhalfe;fomay raenfometimesmakeitofc^parts andmore,as fome indifferent workemen 
haue affirmed. But this, I fay, fhall be made of 8. parti ,which muft hold his thickncfTe bclowjand fo fhall 
their Bafesbeof halfe the fame thickenes, which ritruuius Icttcth downediligently^n the 3. Booke,and in 
the third Chapter of the fame Booke,in this maner, that the Bafe aforefayd,muft be of halfe the Columnes 
thickenefTe, but the Plinthus muft be of the third patt thereof: which Plinthus taken of, you fhal make fe- 
uen parts of the reft; whereof three fhall be for the Thorus, and foure fhall bee for the two Scoties or Tro- 
chiles,with their Aftragals and Lifts, fo that each Trochile muft haue his Aftragall. The Aftragall fhall 
be the eyght part of the Trochile, the Lifts halfe the Aftragals. Although each Scotie with the Appen- 
danccsarcallof one height,yct the vndcrmoftfhalbe greater; for it fhall fhoot out vnderneath,to the out- 
tetrnoft part of the Plinthus. The Proie&ure on ey thcr fide, fhall be one eyght part, and one fixt part/fb 
that the Plinthus on eythcr fide fhall be one fourth part,and one eyght part more then the tbickenefle of

' pofedof the others aforcfayd,moued thereunto by the autborjrie of Romanc worke, which 
we may fee with our eyes. And^ntruetr^the workemans forefight ought to befuch, that 
as occafionferueth,hc may make many things by thefayd fimplc and compound worke, refpedting both 
the nature and the fubied. And therewithal! the workeraan fometimes ftowhofe judgement many fub- 
icftsmay be referred) fhall be abandoned and left by Vitruum counfel , that could not conceaue alljwhere- 
by he fhould be brought into attraight,and compelled to do,as he feeth cafe: (1 mean ej for thatf//r«»/w, 
in my opinion,lpeakcth not at all of this Compofita , by foroc called, Latina,and by o t hcrs^I taiica ; which 
the old Romanes,peraducnturc, being not able to goe beyond the inuention of the Greckes, finders of the 
Dorica after the example of men ,and of the Ionica , refembled to women , and the Corinthia, after the 
forme of maydes,of the Ionica and Corinthia made a compofit ion, piecing the Volute ol the Ionica,with 
the Echino in the Capitall Corinthia; and thefethevvfed more in Arches tryumphant, then in any other 
things: which they did with good fote(ight,forthat they tryumphedoucr all thofe countries, fro whence 
thefayd worke had their beginnings; and fo they might well at their pleafures t as commanders ouer them, 
fet thefc orders together, as they haue done in the great building of the Romifh Colifeo. And hauing 
therein placed the 3 , ordets one vpon the other, viz, Dorica, Ionica and Corinthia, th^y placed Compo- 
fita aboue them all,w hich, by euery one,is called fo : although, as men may percey ue,thc Capitals are al- 
mofl Corinthia, But it was an excellent judgement, in my opinion, of them,t nat hauing placed this order 
inthehigheftpart of the Colifeo, which being farrc off from mens fight, men fhould haue feene, if they 
had fet the Architraue, Freefe and Cornice of the Ionica and Corinthia aboue the Columnes, thatfuch 
Worke, by long diftance of time, would haue prooued bad.* but placing theMutilesin the Freefe, 
they made the worke rich, and it holpe the Procedure of the Corona', and withal! , it wrought another 
effect, which was, that the Architraue, Freefe, and Cornice, feemed to be one Cornice alone , by meanes 
of the Modiglions that were fet in the Frccfe,f or that they feemed great, obferuing their proportion.

Of Ornaments of Pi&ures within and without thehoufes. 

The eleuentb Qbapter. 

Hat I may not Jeauc out any kinds of Ornaments, whereof Igiuenot fome rule tor inftrudioe, as 
well in Pictures as other things, 1 fay ,that the workeman ought not onely to takecare of the Orna- 
ments of ft one or marble, but alto of the Paynters worke, to let out the wallcs withall : and it is re- 
qui Ike, that he fhould prefcribe an ore'er thesem, as Surueyor of all the workc : for this caufc, that 
fome Paynters haue beene workemen good inough, touching the handling of their worke, but for 
the reft, of fo little vnderftanding, that defiring to fhc w their fkill in the placing of the colours, haue 
difgraced, aud iom eti me fpoy led a Story of a houfe, for want of confideration how to place the Pic- 
tures in the fame. Thcrefbreii they haue a Forefront cr Facicof a houfc to paynr, it is certayne, there is noopen- 
nefl'e to be left, whereayrc or lantfhap is to be made , for thole breake the building ; and of a thing that is many and 
dofc,thcy tranfforme it into an open wcake forme,like a ruinous and v nperfk building. Alio there fhould be na pcrfo- 
nages nor beafts coloured, vnleffeit wereto trim and deckc doorcs, wherein there are mensperfonages: butifthc 
owner of the houfe, or the Paynter, defire colours, that the worke may not be broken nor fpoy led, a man may coucr 
a hackled walloucr with cloth, and therein paynt what he will: and alio, after the mancr of try ■mpbs, a man may 
bang on the wall Gatlands,and ftrings of Leaues,and Fruits, Flowers, &c, and alfo Shields,Trophees,and fucb things 
asarctobeftirrcd: butif you will paynt the wallcs with firme matter, then you may fayne things of marble or other 
ftones, cutting therein what you will: you may alfo beau tifie fome figures in Niches, with metall, and fo the worke will 
rcmayne firme, cV worthy commendation of all thofe that know good worke from bad. And the Author rehear fcth di- 
uers excellent workemen, whorac (for breuitie fake) I will omit, that onely vfed to paynt nothing elfe but white and 
blacke in houfes, and yet fo excellently well, that it made men wonder to behold them. A man may alfo, with good 
reafon, make and fee forth certayne openings in wallcs of lodgings, round about the Courts,and make ayre, lantfhaps, 
houfes, figures, beafts, and fuch like things, as hee will in colours. Alfo, ifa man hath Chambers,Hallcs, or other 
places, about the ground within, to paynt and fee forth, thena Paynter, in mancr of Architecture, may make open- 
ings to fee through them , astheplaceis: for aboue the fight a man muft make nothing but ayre or fkyes, roofes, 
high hilks,and the vpper part of houfes : and if you place figures alfo aboue the fight, a man muft fee vnder thera,aad 
not the ground wheteon they ftand. And if the Paynter will makeaHall or any other, or further roome pcrfpccTiuc- 
ly, heonay,ouerthegoingin, with order of Architect ure,make ic to fliew further then in effcfl it is* And this^Bsltb** 
;j*r (a roan excellently well learned in Archite&urc) did,in beautifying the Hall of <^4H£ttJHu G*yfe, a Marchant of 
Home, wherc,in that fort he fetout fome Columnes, and other Architecture to that purpofe : fo that Peter Am%n-, a 
man alio fkilfull in Paynting and in PocGe,fayd,that there had not beene a perfiter Paynter then he in that houfe, al- 
though there is worke alfo in it of Ptfpb<ie/t ownc doing, Andwhenthc wallesarepaynted, end if you will haue the 
roofe alfo done , then follow the fteps of Antiquitie , making things that are called Grootcs, which, for that you may 
make them as you will, fhew well therein, as Leaues, Flowers, Beafls,Birds,and ethcrmixed matter. If a man makcth 
anyclotbeser apparell of figures, orwhicharemadefaftonthem, therein a man may dec as he will. But ifaPayn- 
ter will mJ..e any figures according to the life, in a roofe of a houfe, then he muft be very f kilfull, and much exercifcd 
in Perfpefliue worke , and very iudicious to chufc fuch things as are fitted for the place , and rather hcauenly flying 
things, then earthly things, with fuch Arte, that he muft fhorten the figures fo (although they bee monftrout) that 
when men ftand a conuenient diftance off from thcm,they may tefemblc the life. Which thing is excellently wcllmadc 
iaLtrette Mantm, and other places in Italy, by diucrs workemen: yet fkilfull workemen in our time haue (huoned 
fucb fhonening.for that(in trut h)it is not fo pleafing to the eyes of the common fort of people. Therefore fyfbttlDmr- 
&ri*,whomI will alwayesnamc DiuiHe,foribatheneuerhad his fellow, (I fay no more) in this thing, as men lodged of 
him when he was to paynt the roofe of a/fuguftiu Gnyje his (jallery,fhunned flior t e ning as much as he could : f*r when 
hccaroctothehighcftpart of the roofe, and there meant to make the banquet of the gods, hcauenly things, a»d uicb 
as ferued to the purpofe for a roofe, taking away the harfhnclTe of fhortcnings, ft t forth a cloth of azure colour, made 
fafttothe ftrings or Garlands, as if it had beene aching to bee ftird, and therein made the banquet fofecmcly and fo 
workemanIike,that the Gallery was rather efteemed for a preparation to a tryuropb,then a plaync pay nting made vp» 
on a wall. Therefore the workeman, that ought not to be vnfkilfull in Perlpeltiuc worke, fhould notindufe, at be- 
ing Surueyor ouer all the workemen in the building, that any thing fhould be* made therein, without bis counfcll 
and aduice.

Lthough in the Netherlands they vfe not to decke the Chambers in the Rcofts with woodden work, ne* 
uertheks,when a houfe without is made wholy after the oldmanerjt were vnfit that the Roofe (houldnot 
be agreeable^ as atfo the Bedfleeds, Bankes, &c. And which is more,/ would fay f hat each place (hottld be 
[fluffed and 'fated within, with things fitting to that which it {heweth outward. I fay then, Jfthe Roofe 
be high, then the deuijiens to be wide offpace, an A rifing or bearing out well ; and if a man wilt beaut i- 
fieitwithPaynting, it mufl bee well done, and conformably paynted, according to the greatnefje and dijlance thereof. 
It ought alfo to be made of light and brewne colours: and in the middle of the feldyoumu/l fat a gylt Rsfa .♦ buttfa 
man will colour it \ then the field mu(l be blue, as piercing, but the Rofes mufi be bound with fame works or branches ', 
that they may not feeme to hang in the ayre : and the Cornices which clofe vp thefourefanare or other fields , mttft bee 
wellgylt,or beautifyed with the fame colour: but if fobeethe Roofeisnot high inough } then you muft make the worke 
thinner and [mailer jis alfo the pay nting : and that you may vnderflandit,! hauefet two figures to (hew you , which t 
notwithfianding^ate aOone : the one ofbare wood, the other paynted, as I [ayd before. And this Order 1 obferaedin the 
Roofe of the great Ltbrariein the Palace of Venice, in the time of the Prince Andreagriti , becaufe the Roofe 
was lower then itfhouldbe, inrefaeclof ' the wideneffe and length oj "the Hall, and I made it of tkinntmrke,farthe

Of diucrs maners of Temples, 
The fourteenth Qhapter. 

Lthough wee fee and find diucrs formes of Temples and Churches in Chriftendomc, as 
well ancient as moderne,y cc for that I haue formerly promifed to (hew fome Orders there- 
of,to accomplish die number of my Bookes, therefore I will intreat of them , and fct do wne 
| twelue fcuerall maner of Temples, with their; grounds and meaiures: and for that the 
_ round forme is the pcrfiteft of all others, therefore I will begin with it.* but though in our 
time, whether it be by reafoa of fmall deuotion, or cruelty or men, there are no more great 
Churches begun to be made, and that men finilh not them which in former time haue bcene begun,there- 
fore I will make mine fo fmall, as they may pafle in reafonable maner, for that with fmall coft, they might 
in fhort time be made. The Diameter of this ground (hall be as long as high, according to the Figure of 
the Circle, thatis,of 60. foote. The thicknefleofthe wall (hall be thefourthpart of the Diameter, that 
is, 1 5 . foote, that a man may eafily make the Chappels within it : which Chappels fhall be 1 2 . foot broad. 
The Niches bctweene the Pillars'- (half bee foure foote broad: the other in the Entrie, and of the three 
Chappels, (hall be fixe foote and a halfe broad: and to fpare charges of ftone and lime, the great Niches 
(hall be made without the Chappell: the bredth whereof (hallbeeiy. foote. This Chappell is eleuated 
from the earth at leaft flue fteps ; and if it were higher, it were not amifle: for the earth in time rifeth, fo that 
men gocdowneward into many old Temples and Churches, whereunto, in former time they afcended
