View of the city taken from "Gli Archi Trionfali Onorarii e Funebri degli Antichi Romani Sparsi per tutta Italia", printed for the author in 1836. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. This volume was published as the seventh part of Rossini's grand opus of engravings of ancient Roman antiquities, and concentrates specifically on triumphal and funerary arches. Half of the engravings are exquisite views of the arches themselves, with the remaining plates providing more detailed study of the bas-relief decoration of the arches. All of the major arches in Rome are engraved as well as the magnificent examples in Trieste, Rimini, Fano, Benevento, Aosta, Susa, Perugia, Pola, Carsoli, Spello, Verona, Spoleto, Pompeii and Ancona. Copperplate, in very good conditions. Rare.
