Description:
Nuremburg: Froberger for Sandrart, 1685. Folio, early calf, worn and rubbed but sound. Minor worming. Plates fresh with strong impressions of the plates. Complete with 42 engraved plates of spectacular baroque Roman fountains whose style derived from the architecture of imperial antiquity. All but two of the plates are copies of etchings designed and engraved by Falda for "Le Fontane di Roma" of 1675. The fountains are linked to the urban spectacle of surrounding buildings and influenced by theatrical stage design. They include those in St. Peter's Square and at the papal palaces and the Pantheon; in the Piazzas Capitoline, Navona, de Popolo and di Spagna; in front of the Palaces Aldobrandini, Colonna and Farnese; and the Moses fountain (Fontana dell'Aqua Felice). Millard, Italian Books, 36: "... the most sophisticaed and elaborate collection of plates ever engraved on the subject." Berlin Catalogue, 3604 (this edition).. Early Calf. Very Good. Folio.
