Excerpt from Rome, in Its Ancient Grandeur: Displayed in a Series of Engravings, Presenting the Architectural Antiquities of the Imperial City

This work comprises a Series of Examples judiciously selected from the most celebrated Buildings of Ancient Rome, with every particular required for the instruction of the student, the information of the artist, and the guidance of architectonic skill; including correct admeasurements, details, descriptions, and every requisite for the assistance of the Professor. The Engravings exhibit a series of Temples, Porticos, Triumphal Arches, Baths, Amphitheatres; their Elevations, Sections, and Plans: including a collection of architectural Ornaments of the most delicate design, most elaborate workmanship, and purest classical style.

Every Subject is measured according to the English Scale, with the most scrupulous regard to accuracy, and the whole presents such an arrangement of Columns, Pilasters, Capitals, Bases, Friezes, Architraves, Cornices, Soffits, Rosettes, Modillions, Mouldings, both plain and decorated, &c., as will not be found in any other publication. These details have always been resorted to as models for our Public Edifices, and as furnishing highly esteemed originals for the Decorations of Domestic Architecture: the accuracy of the Measures and Proportions, calculated in this edition by the English Standard, constitutes this Series an invaluable collection of Working Drawings: the measurements were originally according to the French scale, which is to the English as
12.788 to 12, therefore very inconvenient to the British Student: this is now correctly rectified.

From the complete, elaborate, and accurate mode in which the Details are laid down, the various relative positions in which they are placed, the precision of their respective proportions, their comparative admeasurements, their breadths, their heights, their projections, their smallest ornaments, from these artistic advantages, the experienced professor, the intelligent student, the skilful operative, the modeller, the carver, the sculptor, the decorator, will be enabled to produce his Capitals, Volutes, Rosettes, Mouldings, and all architectural accessories with implicit confidence in the accuracy of his authority, and perfect reliance on the classic precision of his own scientific skill.

Instead of being confined to the Library of the Patron, the Studio of the Architect, the Book-cases of Public Institutions, or the Presses of a National Museum, the work is now placed within the reach of every one who desires to possess it: no longer restricted to the patronage of the opulent, these first-rate specimens will correct the taste and guide the industry of the intelligent artificer, while the pupil will rectify his judgment and extend his knowledge by studying the classic simplicity of Roman Art in its most palmy days, and will acquire a correct and an extensive acquaintance with the ornate magnificence and elaborate enrichments of the era of Diocletian.

Memoir of M. Antoine Desgodetz.

Antoine Desgodetz, a very eminent Architect, was a native of Paris. At the early age of twenty-one, he was commanded by the celebrated Colbert, then Prime Minister of France, to go to Rome, accompanied by several other Academicians, for the purpose of studying the Ancient Architecture of that City from the Edifices themselves. Unfortunately, they were captured by a Corsair, and carried into Algiers, where they remained in captivity during sixteen months: they were then ransomed by order of the French Monarch. M.
