    Luigi Rossini (1790-1857)
    . Six Prints, including: Veduta dell' Anfiteatro Flavio, detto il Colosseo. [and:] Veduta dei Grandi Avanzi degli Aquedotti di Nerone. [and:] Veduta del Pantheon di Agrippa. [and:] Veduta del Tempio di Antonino, e Faustina. [and:] Veduta dell' Interno del Tempio della Concordia, nel Foro Romano. [and:] Interno di una Piscina o Conserva d'Acqua. Six engravings by Luigi Rossini, most of which are from his Le Antichita Romane (Rome: 1819-1829). All are in generally very good condition with toning to edges. The Tempio di Antonino and Piscina prints have foxing. The Tempio della Concordia print has a stain along the right edge, outside the platemark, measuring approximately half-an-inch x 5 inches. All have light penciled notations. These sheets measure approximately 29.5 x 21 inches, with the Piscina measuring 25 x 19.25 inches.

    Cavalier (Giovanni Battista) Piranesi (1720-1778). One Print: Veduta del Tempio di Ercole nella Citta di Cora.
    Engraving from his posthumously-published Vedute di Roma, the edition of this print unknown. Print is toned and foxed. There is a 2.75-inch vertical tear extending from bottom edge only very slightly past the platemark; tear has been repaired on the reverse, resulting in a stain on front and back, caused by the acidic reaction between adhesive and paper. Chip to top left corner. Light penciled notations. Sheet measures 25.75 x 20.5 inches.
