VEDUTA DEL PROSPETTO PRINCIPALE DELLA COLONNA ANTOININA E VEDUTA PRINCIPALE DELLA COLONNA TRAIANA, AD MDCCLXXII, INCISIONI DEL CAVALIERE GIAMBATTISTA PIRANESI
by Giovanni Battista Piranesi; Henry Focillon
Roma: Editalia Edizioni D';Italia, 1965. Two large folded reproductions of Piranesi's engravings of the Antonine Column and Trajan's Column, one 54 x 313 cm. folded 9 times, and the other 54 x 300 cm. folded 8 times. The two plates with a printed leave with text by Henri Focillon in Italian. Housed in the publisher's portfolio, in brown cloth with stamping in gold, backed in tan calf which was splitting and has been repaired with japanese tissue. The slipcase which housed the whole production has lost its sides and has been repaired with tissue; it now functions as a second portfolio. The elaborate pastedowns has some minor surface loss. The two folding plates are Near Fine, though one has glue residue at the top (not affecting the printing) from where it was presumably stubbed in at some time. (Inventory #: 275830)
