SADELER, Gilles (1570--1629)
Vestigi delle antichita di Roma Tivoli Pozzvolo et altri lvochi come si ritrovavano nel secolo M.D. Con privilegio di Sva Sac. Ces Mae
[Rome]: si stampano in Roma da Gio Iacomo de Rossi Alla pace Al in segna di parigi, [168-?].
[51] pl. ; 41.0 cm. (2°)

Imprint from title-plate publication line. The first edition of Sadeler's work was published in Prague in 1606 (Berlin Kat. 1855). Plates 2--9, 11--38 are reduced copies of Étienne Du Pérac's Vestigi dell'antichità di Roma (1575). A copy evidently made its way to Rome in the mid-seventeenth century, where it was copied from the second state of the original with Marco Sadeler's excudit on all but two of the plates. The commonest form of the Roman manifestation of the work is that represented by the BAL copy, which has an earlier state of the title-plate lacking the phrase 'Come Si Ritrovavano Nel Secolo M.D.' but continuing after the privilege statement '... Stampati In Praga Da Ægidio Sadeler Scvltore ...', with the imprint reading 'si stampano Adesso in Roma ...' dated 1660. Soane's copy can be identified with the variant of the 1660 de' Rossi edition in the Library of Congress noted by Fowler, was probably issued sometime before G.G. de' Rossi's death in 1691, with probably the fourth state of the title-plate. The watermark where visible is a fleur-de-lys in a double-rule circle. See BAL, Early printed books, no, 2882 (1660 state); Fowler Cat. 283; Weinreb Cat. 40:359.

Copy Notes Bound (2) with Domenico Rossi's edition of Giacomo Lauro, Romanæ magnitudinis monumenta, 1699 (q.v., copy 2). With the plates bound vertically.

Binding C17th sprinkled sheep, gilt-tooled spine compartments, maroon spine-label gilt-lettered 'Romanæ Magnitudinis Monumenta'.
