Product description

Published in 1905 by Adam Charles Black.

With 70 full colour plates of paintings by Alberto Pisa, depicting various historical sites and views around Rome, each plate is described on the facing page. Text by M A R Tuker gives the history and contemporary descriptions of the city. Includes an index.

Alberto Pisa (186 4–1936 was an Italian painter, often painting ruins, landscapes, and garden views in bright watercolour. He completed illustrations for books and journals, and completed a number of watercolours depicting vedute of Rome, Pompeii, and Florence.

Beautifully bound in bright red leather with opulent tooled gilt decoration, 5 spine bands, marbled end papers, and gilt page edges.

In pretty good condition. The covers are a bit faded, and darkened, with some rubbing wear. Particularly noticeable on the spine. Some light foxing, and light yellowing to the pages. The page marker ribbon has become detached. The binding is still firm and the pages are clean.
