Traktat Witruwiusza

Nasze zbiory wzbogaciły się ostatnio o obiekt niezwykle cenny i wyjątkowy: traktat rzymskiego architekta Witruwiusza „O architekturze ksiąg dziesięć”. Egzemplarz ten ukazał się w 1548 roku w Norymberdze, w witrynie wydawniczej Johanna Petreiusa i jest pierwszym niemieckim przekładem (autorstwa Walthera Hermanna Ryffa) owego traktatu. Jego treść szczegółowo objaśnia zasady rządzące architekturą i jest nieocenionym źródłem wiedzy o budownictwie starożytnych Greków i Rzymian. Część tekstową starodruku wzbogaca około 190 drzeworytów.

Zakup dofinansowano ze środków Ministerstwa Kultury i Dziedzictwa Narodowego.
