Description

This book on the buildings and ruins of Rome by the 17th century artist and engraver, Giovanni Maggi, is typical of the works by which the ruins of antiquity became known outside Italy through that century. The remnant of the Temple of Jupiter Stator (Castor and Pollux) in the Roman Forum, shown here with its prominent and accessible columns and entablature, was the frequent subject of measured drawings by the visiting architects of the 18th century. The amphitheatre was at the Campus Martius. Maggi is now better known for an impressive twelve sheet perspectival map of Rome that was published after his death in 1725. A copy of an early 20th century reprint of Iconographia della citta di Roma is held in the Library's Special Collections.
