Item description for De Huysbou: A Reconstruction of an Unfinished Treatise on Architecture, Town Planning and Civil Engineering by Simon Stevin (Edita - History of Science and Scholarship in the Netherlands) by Charles Van Den Heuvel...

One of the greatest mathematicians and engineers of his day, Simon Stevin (1548-1620) is probably best known for popularizing decimal fractions. But few people know about his interest in architecture, as documented in De Huysbou, a project that occupied the last twenty years of Stevin's life. This new translation includes passages from Stevin's text, an extensive bibliography, and an in-depth analysis of Stevin's theories of urban planning within a larger European context. It will be a valuable resource for historians of Stevin's work, as well as those interested in Dutch and European architecture and urban planning.
