The common workmen of our time little regard or esteemd to work with right simetrie, without which it is confused and erronious in the judgement of the learned artificers.Who so shall follow these rules hereafter set down, shall not onely have his work well esteemed of the common people, but also generally commended and approved of all workmen and men of judgement. That the artist ... shall at last attaine unto his desire
