magnificent views of the ancient temples at paestum, givoanni battista piranesi's last and one of his greatest works.

In 1776 Piranesi had travelled to the great Doric temples of Paestum, south of Naples, and in 1777 or 1778 he returned accompanied by his son Francesco, his assistant Benedetto Mori and others, spending several weeks sketching and measuring the remains. It remains a matter of scholarly discussion as to the amount of Francesco Piranesi's involvement in the plates, however, "commentators agree that all the plates show signs of Giovanni Battista's work, and were probably brought near to completion by the artist before his death [on 9 November 1778]." (BAL RIBA cat., p.1483). Fifteen of the original drawings are now in the Sir John Soane Museum, two further drawings are in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France and the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam.

There are no watermarks on the plates in this copy, which would determine Rome or Paris, however the plates are certainly before the Paris 1836 re-issue, because they have not been re-numbered.
