Lives of the Most Eminent Painters, Sculptors and Architects

by Giorgio Vasari

translated by Gaston du C. De Vere

This is a 10-volume translation of Vasari's biographies of Italian artists, issued in London by Macmillan and the Medici Society between 1912 and 1915. The volumes of this edition are profusely illustrated with color and black and white plates.

The Internet Archive has various page image formats for all 10 volumes, and Project Gutenberg has illustrated transcriptions. Below we list the volumes and their contents.

This is a "meta-book", which stitches together separate files elsewhere on the Web as they appeared in a previously published book. It is subject to removal if someone produces an integrated edition. If that happens, The Online Books Page will point to the integrated version.
