0 Reviews
Most of the 399 drawings published in these three volumes document the remains of ancient buildings in Rome and the surrounding countryside that survived in the first half of the seventeenth century. The group comprises specifically commissioned drawings as well as earlier fifteenth- and sixteenth-century material acquired by Cassiano, including works by Francesco di Giorgio, Andrea Palladio, Pirro Ligorio, Giovanni Antonio Dosio and Antonio Labacco. "These lavishly produced volumes constitute (...) a magnificent contribution to our knowledge both of Roman antiquities and of renaissance and baroque interest in them." (Apollo Magazine, April 2005) "The Illustrations in these volumes, the copious illustrated comparanda, the individual entries and discussions of the catalogue, the care in production and publication - all this is exemplary. Ancient Roman Topography and Architecture will stand proud beside the rest of the Paper Museum publication project as a monument in modern publishing and a fundamental resource." (I. Campbell in Times Literary Supplement, 4 February 2005, p. 10).
