From a book by Hans Vredeman de Vries with twenty-three plates of architectural designs based on the five orders of architecture. The book was first published by Gerard de Jode in 1577, with editions in French, German and Dutch. This edition (the ninth) was printed by Abraham Verhoeven for the publisher, Pieter de Jode I, in 1619. After the etched title plate (with the German title, as it first appeared in the fourth edition in 1581), are five folios of letterpress text in French with explanations of each of the five architectural orders. The text begins on the first page with the dedication to Denys van der Neesen, secretary of Antwerp, by Theodorus Kemp, and ends with the imprint: "De l'Imprimerie de Abraham Verhoeuen, pour Pierre de Iode, l'An M. DC. XIX."
