About this Item

4to. xvi, 200 pp. Full page engraved frontis-plate, engraved title-page vignette, two engraved vignettes in the text. Contemporary full vellum, ms. spine title; lightly soiled. Exlib bookplate and spine label. Very good. FIRST EDITION of this monograph on the two bells consecrated by Pope Pius VII on the Capitoline Hill in Rome. Michelangelo was responsible for the design of the square and the original buildings, and today the Piazza di Campidoglio is considered "â¦one of the most significant contributions ever made in the history of urban planning" [M. Trachtenberg, Architecture: from Prehistory to Post-Modernism, p. 31]. The first part of the work refers exclusively to bells; in the remaining half Cancellieri proceeds to detail the building history of the square and its palaces. There are many references to clocks and sundials (for civic buildings) in Milan, Venice, Padua, and Genoa, as well as a perpetual motion clock. The engraved plate shows the campidoglio and buildings surrounding a statue of Minerva, with Pius VII depicted on her shield. Bookseller Inventory # S10023
