      GIOVANNI B. PIRANESI
      Ichnographiam Campi Martii antiquae urbis.

      Etching and engraving from 6 plates on 6 sheets, 1757. 1350x1170 mm; 53x46 inches wide margins. From Il Campo Marzio dell'Antica Roma. A superb impression of this monumental, extremely scarce print.

      Piranesi's fantastic archeological view of ancient Rome. Though there is little correlation between this view and the actual layout of Roman monuments, it does reveal the great interest in antiquities and the nascent study of archeology in Piranesi's time. Focillon 440; Wilton-Ely 571.
