Two works in one Folio volume (mm 340x240); VIII pp., 141 pp., etched frontispiece, 61 full-page etchings, engraved title vignette; XII pp., 81 pp. etched title and 25 etched plates, of which 8 are full-page. Contemporary half calf with double label on spine. FIRST EDITION of both works, often bound together. Written about 1625, the Trattato sopra gli error degli architetti expresses Gallaccini's views on restraint in art and architecture, which brought him to the attention of proponents of neo-Palladianism such as Visentini and Consul Joseph Smith. Visentini had already engraved Canaletto's views of Venice for Smith and carried out architectural commissions for the Consul, and Smith was involved in the publication of these two architectural treatises. A good margined copy, binding somewhat torn at edges and spine.
