Palladio's 'Four books of architecture'

Regular readers of this blog will know that we're doing what we can to provide our users with full-text e-content to complement our traditional printed collections. We're currently experimenting with the digitisation of some of our older and rarer material, and have just completed a pilot project to make our 1581 edition of Palladio's 'I quattro libri dell'architettura' freely available via the Internet Archive website.
