Duppa was in Rome during the French occupation of the city in 1798 when a new Roman Republic was proclaimed, and the Vatican sacked. His account of the events and circumstances relating to General Berthier's march with the army of the Directory on Rome in 1798 and the retreat of the Pope to Siena includes an appendix of documents in French and Italian, and a list of 62 works of sculpture taken from the Museum Clementinum. The first of these is the Apollo Belvedere, which was taken to the Louvre in Paris by Napoleon and repatriated to the Vatican in 1815, and a cast of which, previously belonging to Lord Burlington, was acquired by Soane in 1811 and installed in the Dome area of his house at Lincoln's Inn Fields. With an errata leaf at the end and a half-title. ESTC t64203.
