(Libro estraordinario, including the title), figs, modern ivory half parchment with corners, smooth spine, black title-piece (blank leaf not preserved at the end of book 5; soiling, stains and russeting not serious; some ff. brought back from other copies, including the general title, restored in the margins) Reunion of the collective edition of Serlio's five books on architecture, and his "extraordinary" treatise on monumental doors, published by the same publisher at the same date and often found together. The set is amply illustrated with numerous woodcut figures, most of them full-page. A copy established in the 20th c. but bearing on the back cover the label of the print dealer Salmon in Paris (19th c.) and the engraved armorial bookplate of Count Dimitri-Petrovitch Boutourlin (1763-1829), a Russian diplomat, perhaps reported.
