Issued as suite 12 in Dumont's Recueil de plusieurs parties de l'architecture, 3 tomes, c. 1770 (q.v.). The title-plate is numbered as plate 11 and suite No. 12. The engraved 'Catalogue' at the end of each volume of the Recueil calls for 25 feuilles or leaves of plates of a 'Suitte de Vuës de divers Edifices tant d'Italie que de France avec des notes et remarques sur les parties les plus intéressantes, on y a joint des compositions libres dans le genre pittoresque'; at least two constituent suites can be distinguished in the 25 leaves of the Soane copy. The title-plate as above is preceded by an engraved map of central Italy, and followed by a collection of vedute with engraved descriptive text mainly designed by Israel Silvestre and executed by Israel Henriot, assembled by Dumont, according to a statement on the title-plate, to "suppléer aux observations qu'il a fait lui-même sur les lieux lors de ses séjours en Italie". This group of engravings is followed by another group of nine feuilles, distinguished as suite 12b in Millard and 12a in the Berlin catalogue, with a separate title reading Diuerses veuës de Rome et composition libres d'architecture, mises en lumiere par Mr. Dumont (q.v.), thus making up the total of 25 as called for in the 'Catalogue'. Millard I, pp. 168, 172; Berlin Kat. 2416.
