Giuseppe Vasi published ten books of etchings showing the monuments of Rome between 1746 and 1761. This great work is titled Della Magnificenze di Roma Antica e Moderna and is regarded by many authorities as the most accurate depiction of ancient and Baroque Rome. The 216 engraved views were supplemented by text written by Guiseppe Bianchini and Vasi himself. Books such as these were a popular purchase while on the Grand Tour of Rome. Vasi also published itineraries for those on Grand Tour.
This set of three engravings is from one those volumes. The views are #109 Chiesa dei SS Celso e Guiliano, #23 Piazza Di Monte Citorio and #115 Chiesa Di S. Marco. Each is numbered on the lower right corner. The prints are housed in simple 19th century ebonized oak frames. Each retains its original backing paper and wavy glass. The prints are in good condition with light foxing. The frames show wear along the edges. Backing papers are somewhat torn. Overall size is 16.25" x 12.5", plate size is approx. 12" x 8". They are printed on chain link paper.
