BARTOLI, Pietro Santi (1635--1700)
[Columna Antoniana. 1704]
Columna Cochlis M. Aurelio Antonino Augusto dicata eius rebus gestis in Germanicâ, atque Sarmaticâ expeditione insignis, ex S.C. Romæ ad viam Flaminiam erecta, ac utriusque belli imaginibus anaglyphice insculpta: brevibvs notis Io. Petri Bellori illustrata et a Petro Sancte Bartolo juxta delineationes in Bibliothecâ Barberinâ asservatas, ac cum antiquis ipsius columnæ signis collectas ære incisa iterum in lucem prodit ...
Romae ex chalcographiâ Dominici de Rubeis, 1704.
engr. t.-pl., engr. dedic., 77 pl. ; 34.4 x 47.5 cm. (obl. 2°)

Second edition; the first is undated c. 1672 and bears the title Columna Antoniniana Marci Aurelii Antonini Augusti rebus gestis insignis .... Copies are found with or without three plates by Francesco Faraone Aquila, numbered I--III, of the base of the Columna Antonini Pii. These were probably added to copies of an intermediate issue prior to the Stylobates Columnae Antoninae title-leaf dated 1708 (q.v.). This was used both for a separate issue of the three Aquila plates, and apparently as a title-plate for a reissue of the whole work as in the British Library copy, shelfmark 1707.a.6. The Soane copy of the present work, in a later binding, has the three Aquila plates bound at the end with the 1708 Stylobates title-plate, but it is not clear whether it was issued thus. They are here treated as separate works. BAL, Early printed books, no. 213.
