New on HEB: Architecture and Memory

HEB has just released another installment in its Gutenberg-e series, the XML-formatted edition of a volume originally published by Columbia University Press in collaboration with the American Historical Association.

Robert Kirkbride's Architecture and Memory: The Renaissance Studioli of Federico da Montefeltro presents an investigation of the studioli of the ducal palaces at Urbino and Gubbio, Italy, constructed between 1474 and 1483 for the military captain Federico da Montefeltro, and addresses the role of architecture in Western tradition as a bridge between the mathematical arts and the art of rhetoric as it relates to memory and eloquence.
