Marcus Vitruvius Pollio's "Ten Books on Architecture" is the most complete treatise on the subject of architecture from antiquity and for hundreds of years influenced major buildings around the world. Dating to the first century B.C., the "Ten Books on Architecture" are not only an excellent historical reference into ancient construction methods and aesthetics but also a manual providing much that can be applied to modern architecture. Today's architect will find much of interest in this fully illustrated reproduction of the 1914 edition translated by Morris Hicky Morgan.
