1.0 out of 5 stars Review of Dover's Medieval Sketchbook of Villard de Honnecourt 8 April 2008
By Carl F. Barnes, Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a bizarre publication, a melange of two earlier editions. The introduction and captions are taken from the 1959 "facsimile edition" by Theodore Bowie (The Sketchbook of Villard de Honnecourt). The illustrations, called "plates," are reproduced from the 1859 English "facsimile edition" by Robert Willis (not mentioned by name), itself a reproduction with additional commentary of the 1858 French "facsimile edition" of Jean-Baptiste Antoine Lassus (L'Album de Villard de Honnecourt, architecte du XIIIe siècle). It is not acknowledged that the illustrations are made from photographs of lithographic renderings of the original drawings and are not photographs of the original drawings themselves.
