Notes SOURCE: Andrea Palladio. The Architecture of Andrea Palladio in Four Books (London, 1717), ed. Giacomo Leoni, Book II, pl. XLIV NOTES: This English edition of Palladio's I Quattro libri dell'architettura contains plates copied from the first Italian edition, published in 1570 and includes additional 'notes and observations' by Inigo Jones. Leoni here adds a hipped roof to the villa and substitutes domes for Palladio's pyramid roofs on the corners.
