Monumenti antichi inediti spiegati ed illustrati da Giovanni Winckelmann prefetto delle antichitá di Roma. Volume primo. (secondo.)
Napoli nella Stamperia Reale, 1820.
2 vols ; 42.3 cm. (2°)

First published in Rome, 1767 (q.v.). The present edition pre-dates the revised and enlarged 'Seconda Edizione' published in Rome by Carlo Mordacchini in 1821, and lacks the material by Stefano Raffei that was issued by Generoso Salomoni with copies sold after Winckelmann's death and later incorporated into the 1821 edition. The engraved illustrations have been given page references based on their location in the first edition, excluding those numbered V and VI in the 'Indicazione De' Rami ...' which have not been reproduced although still listed in the text, and a number of the plates in the present edition have been printed from different coppers.
