...a geometric garden in the making of which it was essential to have a knowledge of geometry. In all this he prefigures many of the principles which ruled garden design in France, and elsewhere, in the 16th and 17th centuries.

France was one of the first countries to show the influence of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili which was translated into French— Le Songe de Poliphile —in 1546 .
