Full Description

Large 4to. Two issues from the periodical The Art Bulletin. The issues are respectively paginated (2) + 111 + (3)pp, and (4) + pp (115)-201 + (3), each including numerous photo plates, and Dinsmoor’s articles on Serlio occupy pp 55-91 and pp (115)-154. Original printed wrappers. No ownership inscriptions but John Bury’s copies.

Two articles published in The Art Bulletin by the Columbia University academic William Bell Dinsmoor (1886-1973), which remain a significant element in the published literature on Serlio. The second of his two articles was particularly important in that it provided the first proper scholarly account of Serlio’s original manuscript of one version of his unpublished Book VI.
