Alberti's On the Art of Building (De re aedificatoria, 1450), a classic architectural treatise, was the first modern theoretical book on architecture and the first printed book on architecture (1485), moving away from the Gothic sensibilites to the Renaissance.

Alberti quotes ~
• “To make clear my exposition in writing this brief commentary on painting, ... I will take first from the mathematicians those things with which my subject is concerned.”
• “When I investigate and when I discover that the forces of the heavens and the planets are within ourselves, then truely I seem to be living among the gods.”
• “Beauty: the adjustment of all parts proportionately so that one cannot add or subtract or change without impairing the harmony of the whole.”
• “There is no art which has not had its beginnings in things full of errors. Nothing is at the same time both new and perfect. ”
• “A man can do all things if he but wills them.”

On Painting, Leon Battista Alberti
