STERN, Giovanni (ca. 1734--1794)
Piante elevazioni profili e spaccati degli edificj della villa suburbana di Guilio III pontefice massimo fuori la Porta Flaminia misurati e delineati da Giovanni Stern architetto romano.
In Roma per Antonio Fulgoni, 1784.
115, [1] p. : XXX full-page engr. pl. ; 82.8 cm. (2°)

The pagination of the letterpress includes the full-page engraved plates, intended to form a single paginated sequence with the letterpress facing the engravings. BAL suggests that the publication date on the title-page, in roman numerals, is open to two readings, as the 'LXXXIIII' has the final 'I' in a larger point size which may be intended to represent 'II' for a publication date reading 1785.

Copy Notes Purchased at Christie's Revett sale, 26--27 June 1804 (q.v.), lot 93 (second day) for £5 1s. Pencil inscriptions on plates I and V.

Binding C18th half mottled-calf, marbled-paper boards, gilt roll-tooled spine, red morocco spine-label.
