The Geometry of an Art: The History of the Mathematical Theory of Perspective from Alberti to Monge (Sources and Studies in the History of Mathematics and Physical Sciences) by Kirsti Andersen
English |2007 | ISBN: 0387259619 | 814 Pages | PDF | 25 MB

This review of literature on perspective constructions from the Renaissance through the 18th century covers 175 authors, emphasizing Peiro della Francesca, Guidobaldo del Monte, Simon Stevin, Brook Taylor, and Johann Heinrich. It treats such topics as the various methods of constructing perspective, the development of theories underlying the constructions, and the communication between mathematicians and artisans in these developments.
