Mariette... e parere su l'architettura... della introduzione e del progresso delle belle arti..., etched general title and 9 plates (6 double-page), 6 head- and tail-pieces) [Hind, p.86], Rome, 1765; Trofei di Ottaviano Augusto, etched title above second vignette (Frammento di uno scudo) and 15 plates (11 double-page, 5 by Francesco Piranesi, all before numbers added), Rome, [1780], 3 works in 1 vol., occasional light spotting or soiling, mostly in margins but affecting a few plates in Trofei (some also with slight crease), contemporary russia, sides with gilt Greek key pattern borders, spine worn and cracked, covers near detached [Hind, pp.86 & 83], folio (535mm. x 400mm.) Footnotes Three of Piranesi's works featuring fine architectural ruins and details, vases, candelabras and friezes, with clean strong impressions of the 40 plates (29 of which are double-page). The Antichità d'Albano was the result of Piranesi's archaeological studies in the area around Lake Albano, where he was encouraged and supported by its dedicatee Pope Clement XIII, whose Castel Gandolfo overlooked the lake. This 'particularly handsome treatise' (Wilton-Ely, p.94) is usually bound with its companion Descrizione... del Lago Albano , but this volume instead contains the Osservazioni , normally bound as a supplement to Della magnificenza ed architettura de' Romani , and the Trofei di Ottaviano Augusto .
