The treatises of Benvenuto Cellini on goldsmithing and sculpture by Benvenuto Cellini (1500 - 1571). Translated by Charles Robert Ashbee (1863 - 1943)

Benvenuto Cellini, a 16th century Florentine goldsmith and sculptor, is perhaps better known for his colorful autobiography than his works of art. In his "Trattati", Cellini explains how he made his intricate pieces in gold, such as the salt cellar intended for the table of King Francis I of France, and his monumental sculptures, including the bronze Perseus and Medusa that stands in Florence's Loggia dei Lanzi. Cellini allows himself numerous digressions, so what might in the hands of another author have proved a dry textbook is instead an amusing companion to his "Vita". (Rob Marland)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/b2488697x
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Thanks, Tricia!

Kristin: first of all, apologies for dropping off the map. I have committed to getting the project recorded by the end of November. Given how long I have been absent I certainly don't expect you to drop your current commitments and DPL this project, but would be glad to have you with us if you are still interested and have time.

I have uploaded the next three sections for PL:
