5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful and not too academic, 31 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vitruvius: 'Ten Books on Architecture' (Paperback)
This translation is greatly enhanced by the many illustrations showing practical details of construction. I chanced across the Channel 4 programme "Rome Wasn't Built in a Day" on 4oD and this book was referred to a lot for Roman techniques so I bought it on spec. I have been involved in timber frame construction including soil based panel infilling and building with unfired clay mixed with straw bricks as well as brick and stonework and I found the book very interesting when read with the benefit of practical experience. I think it does not go into sufficient detail to be used as a beginner's manual but it does offer a lot of useful information.

This was a gift. The recipient was very pleased with it. The illustrations are excellent and although he has not yet read it all the way through, he considers that Vetruvius "Knew what he was talking about".
