A decorative titlepage to Matteo Gregorio de Rossi's 'Prospectus locorum urbis Romae Insignium', with a central plynth containing the title, with some of the important buildings of Rome, including St Peter's Basilica, the Capidoglio and the Pantheon, arrayed behind. The 'Prospectus' contained this title and ten plates drawn and engraved by Lievin Cruyl (1634-90+), a Flemish priest, draughtsman and etcher from Ghent who was active in Rome from 1664 until c.1670. He is credited helping develop the style of 'veduta' topography, pre-dating Piranesi by nearly a century. The focus of the 'Prospectus' was the building campaign of Pope Alexander VII (to whom the work is dedicated); apparently Cruyl drew buildings that were not yet finished from architects plans. Matteo Gregorio de Rossi (1638-1702) was the son and successor of the publisher Giovanni Battista de Rossi.
