In this he is following his books that presented architecture in the guise of a complete system easily allied to grammatical systems. Sebastiano Serlio laid out the five orders in a systematic and visual fashion as a full visual language.
He showed the orders together on one page so that the reader could make comparisons.
In the first English architecture treatise, The First and Chiefe Groundes of Architecture , John Shute presented the orders as different types of human figures The Doric is described as equivalent to Hercules, a massive male body with all the characters of the ancient god. As a scheme of five elements, comparable yet different, the orders evoked other hierarchical systems already in place. In sixteenth and seventeenth century England, gradations of social class included distinctions of rank and birth, and easily transposed with a classical architectural system. Ben Jonson mocks this easy exchange between class and architectural classicism in his play A Tale of a Tub :.
The literary aspect of architecture found an easy alliance in a climate that valued textual exegesis at the heart of religious reform and classical allusion as part of political policy We privilege the history of classicism as a linguistic system most closely aligned with books.
Yet one result of the alignment of architecture to language was that it created a hierarchy of status within the field of architecture itself, giving precedence to those aspects of building which could be aligned with an educational program of humanism. Those elements of architecture that did not have that linguistic basis - the work of craftsmen, the attention to materials, the labor of architecture itself - that is, all aspects connected with the vernacular architectural traditions, were now assigned to a secondary status.

The comments that he makes about the architecture that he has seen, and read about previously, adds information that the author does not include and could only be known by someone who had the almost unique opportunity to see the building.
The very presence of the notes confirms a special status on Jones as both an educated and an experienced architect who had the opportunity to travel Anyone could read books but not everyone had seen the buildings. For Jones, travel was a transformation in his professional knowledge of architecture as well as a personal revelation about the intersections of the practice of architecture and the culture of continental humanism. Self-portraits from this period embed the image of Jones within the sculptural frame of classical sculpture and architecture fig.

Books, however, showed buildings as two-dimensional objects, complete yet immaterial in terms of scale, size and materiality. In books, architecture could be studied at a distance, using a comparative method that was at the center of humanistic methods of study and scholarship. Laid out on the page, with measurements and scales provided, the careful reader could extract numerical relationships and linguistic rules from the images, and fill in information from the accompanying text.
Yet there was no way to understand the tangible and sensual aspect of architecture. Travel, however, upended any simple or fixed notion Jones might have had about how classical architecture worked. On the ground, buildings were never as they seemed in books. For Jones, the inconsistency between book and building offered further evidence that the study of architecture required both hard work in his study, and attentive observation of the buildings in situ.
Neither the wood-cut illustrations, nor the brief textual description of the buildings included extensive information on construction techniques or materials That is, the outside stucco contained ground marble and the material used within was a less precious lime stucco.

For an English architect used to different materials and building practices, the techniques used abroad were worthy of extensive comments. In his copy of Scamozzi, Jones later made extensive notes about the practice of covering brick with stucco in order to save expense The experience of architecture outside of England was not only the observation of buildings that looked different from what he knew in England, but also architecture which felt different.
This point requires a bit of an explanation. Annotations in these four books can be dated to the years before he traveled — and almost exclusively, those annotations are about the orders and ornament: the differences between the orders, the use of the orders in various types of buildings, and the techniques for composing ornamental details. The annotations are more personal, more specific to a particular time and place. From masons in Vicenza Jones learned that Palladio had carved one of the capitals of the Palazzo Thiene himself There are notes that record conversations with architects or masons, famously his meeting with Vincenzo Scamozzi Many of these notes are dated, adding to their specificity in time as well as in place.
No longer could he approach classical architecture as a discrete object at a distance, or as an abstract problem that could be solved solely through the manipulation of forms. This transformation stayed with Jones for the rest of his career as an architect. After his return from Italy, Jones continued to annotate his books and to read widely in the field of architecture, history, biography, philosophy and music theory. Yet, he never again wrote the same kind of annotations in his books as he had done before that formative trip.
Almost without exception, he never again wrote the sort of linguistic analysis of architecture, the close study of the orders and architectural ornament that he had written before his trip. After this date he added notes that recalled the first hand experiences he had had when he was traveling. His ability to relive the experience of travel, to call it up again in his memory and then transfer those experiences into new architectural analyses and designs, indicates his belief in the importance and validity of his impressions of architecture Wenceslaus Hollar, Ecclesiae Cathedralis St.
