"Major had engraved the large topographical plates for Wood's Palmyra [see lot 163] and Baalbeck and the success of those works probably inspired him to produce a similar work on Paestum, whose remains had been recently recognized as important classical monuments, and for which there was little published material available. In fact the temples at Paestum were discovered as late as 1746... The importance of Major's work is underlined by the extensive list of subscribers which includes Wood, Dawkins, Sir William Chambers, Stephen Riou, Le Roy, Barthelemy, and Soufflot." (Blackmer)
