Ixii INTRODUCTION.

Palace Trissino, new Trento, a noble strudture—
Sabionetta in the Mantuan, a theatre after the antient
model, for the Duke Vespasian Gonzaga of that ti-
tle.—At Florence, the second story of the palace
Strozzi.'—In Genoa, Palazzo Ravalchieri os three
stories, Rustic, Ionicr Corinthian—in 1604 he was
called to Saltsburg, where he built the Cathedral.
His skill as a military Architedt is proved by the fa-
mous fortress of Palma in Friuli, of which he laid the
first stone in presence of the Venetian generals in
1593. Besides his more known construdtions in Italy,
he furnished a great number os designs for foreign
countries, at the request of sovereigns and other per-
sonages.

This multiplicity of occupations much shortened
the leisure he wislied to employ on the above men-
tioned ample Treatise of Architedture, which he in-
tended to divide into twelve books. He theresore re-
duced it to ten; but, though such is the numberan-
nounced in the title-page, the work as published in
1615 contains but six, i. e. books, 1,2, 3, of the first
part, and 6, 7, 8 of the second. The supply of this
imperfection was unhappily prevented by his death
in 1616, at the age of 64, in Venice, where he had
sepulture in the church os St. Giovanni e Paolo,
without a monument: but one was, many years aster,
eredted to his memory in the church of St. Lorenzo
in Vicenza, his native city. His effedts were lest to
an adoptive son Andrea Toaldo, of the family of
Gregorj, who took the name os Scamozzi.
