Sayfa 31 - Ecce [ego] mit[t]o angelum meum ante laciem tuam qui preparabit viam tuam ante te. Vox clamantis in deserto, Parate viam Domini, rectos facite semitas [ejus]".
Sayfa 2 - ... sheared off all the light wood of the long-leaved olive, and roughhewed the trunk upwards from the root, and smoothed it around with the adze, well and skilfully, and made straight the line thereto and so fashioned it into the bed-post, and I bored it all with the auger. Beginning from this...
Sayfa 50 - ... representing bookcases, or rather cupboards, with their contents, amongst which are a ship, a tambourine, military weapons, a cage with a parrot in it, and, as if for the sake of variety only, a few volumes of books, over one of which, containing music, with the word ROSABELLA inscribed on its pages, is suspended a crucifix. On the central case opposite to the window, and occupying as it were the post of honour, is the Garter, with its motto, HONI SOIT Q MAL I PENSE ; a device which has been...

Sayfa 5 - ... Cicero gave no less than one million sesterces for a veneered table of citrus wood." Pliny goes on to say: "The wood, too, of the beech is easily worked, although it is brittle and soft. Cut into thin layers of veneer, it is very flexible, but it is only used for the construction of boxes and desks. The wood, too, of the holm oak is cut into veneers of remarkable thinness, the colour of which is far from unsightly.
Sayfa 49 - Minerva with her aegis, Apollo with his lyre, and the nine muses with their appropriate symbols. A similar small study was fitted up immediately over this one, set round with arm-chairs encircling a table, all mosaicked with tarsia, and carved by Maestro Giacomo of Florence, while on each compartment of the panelling was the portrait of some famous author, and an appropriate distich.
Sayfa 17 - Vasari speaks rather slightingly of this art, and says that it was practised chiefly by those persons who possessed more patience than skill in design ; that although he had seen some good representations of figures, fruits, and animals, yet the work soon became dark, and was always in danger of perishing from the worms and by fire.
Sayfa 28 - Dei qui tollit peccata mundi : ecce de quo dicebam vobis; qui post me venit ante me factus est, cujus non sum dignus corrigiam calceamenti solvere.
