DESCRIPTION:
Richly illustrated book of the Italian capital Rome and its buildings by Joachim von Sandrart, 1685.
The 69 copper engravings show the most important ancient and modern buildings of Rome and their surroundings. At the beginning there is a magnificent plan of the ancient Rome: "Vorstellung der Statt Rom, wie sie vor alten Zeiten gebaut gewesen" , followed by views and reconstructions of the forums, theaters, the Circus Maximus, the Palatins, Pantheon, mausoleums and memorials, triumphal arches and -colums, obelisks, and the late medieval architecture with Maxentius-Basilica and Christian churches. Of special interest are the many ground plans of buildings, because some of them do no longer exist. This book reproduces most of the architectural engravings from the book "Teutsche Academie", which for a long time was regarded as the most complete history of architecture, painting, and sculpture (covering Eastern as well as Western art). Added is the work of Giovanni Battista Falda with 42 copper engravings with beautiful images of buildings in and around Rome. Below the copper engravings are short titles in German.
