TITI, Filippo. The first guide to Roman churches, their architecture, sculptures and paintings
Ammaestramento Utile, e curioso di pittura scoltura et architettura nelle chiese di Roma, Palazzi Vaticano,
Rome , Giuseppe Vannacci, 1686. Ammaestramento Utile, e curioso di pittura scoltura et architettura nelle chiese di Roma, Palazzi Vaticano, di Monte Cavallo, & altri, che s'incontrano nel cammino facile, che si fà per ritrovarle . Con l'Indice delle Chiese, e de' Virtuosi, che si nominano Rome,Giuseppe Vannacci, 1686. 16mo. Engraved frontispiece + [60] + 456p. With portrait of author by Vincenzo Mariotti. Contemporary vellum; back neatly restored. The first guide to Roman churches, their architecture, sculptures and paintings. The book remains a valuable source for listing the art treasures found at this period. This is the much augmented third edition containing almost twice the text volume of the two preceding editions (Rome 1674 & Macarata 1675). The author, a cleric from Città di Castello, has here also added a chapter describing the cathedral of his home town. The engraved portait of the author is by Vincenzo Mariotto, a pupil of Andrea Pozzo to whose 'Prospettiva' he contributed. Schlosser states that this was the most extensive art guide of Rome until the mid-18th century ('Kunstliteratur', pp482, 525). A good clean copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
