A fine reproduction map of a plan of the city of Rome, Indicating all of the Antiquities and New Decorations.
The views are of both Roman ruins such as the Pantheon of Agrippa, Trajan’s Column, and the Colosseum (called here “Anfiteatro di Flavio”), and important city buildings such as St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, the Campidoglio, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The central map shows streets, plazas, significant buildings, and landmarks, with a key in the lower-left indicating some major monuments. A compass is drawn in the lower right. Beside it is a list of 14 neighborhoods of Rome, along with the map’s publication information.
