ESTC T117369. Harris 236. Keynes, Evelyn, 78. RIBA, Early Printed Books, 1137. See Fowler 130 and Millard, British, 19 (describing the 1707 second edition). In 1664 Evelyn issued the first edition of his translation of Roland Fréart's Parallèle de l'architecture antique avec la moderne, of 1650-'I had,' Evelyn wrote in his dedication, '(by the Commands of the Royal Society) endeavour'd the improvement of Timber, and the planting of Trees, I have advanced to that of Building as its proper and natural consequence'...In the first part of the Parallel Fréart deals with the three Greek orders as illustrated by a range of theorists and commentators, Palladio and Scamozzi, Serlio and Vignola, Barbaro and Cataneo, Alberti and Viola, Bullant and De L'Orme...The second part of the Parallel concerns the Tuscan and 'Composita,' dealt with in much the same way as before, but at less length...At the end Evelyn made his own contribution; he expanded Fréart's one-page explanation of terms to a twenty-eight page 'Account of Architects and Architecture, together with An Historical, and Etymological Explanation of certain Tearms particularly affected by Architects.' He took his cue from Vitruvius, dealing, in an essay rather than in an alphabetical list, with the qualities requisite for a good architect, a good patron, and a good workman, and then with a detailed analysis of the various parts of the orders. There had been nothing like this before in English, and though Evelyn claimed to be addressing his work primarily to craftsmen, they would not have comprehended much of his meticulous analysis. Appended to the Parallel was the first translation into English of Alberti's Della Statua-'There is no man pretending to this Art, or indeed to any other whatsoever, who does not greedily embrace all that bears the name of Leon Baptista Alberti'" (Millard, British, 19).; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
