From the first edition of the series of prints etched by Etienne Du Pérac and published in Rome in 1575
I Vestigi dell'Antichitá di Roma Raccolti et Ritratti in Perspettiva con Ogni Diligentia da Stefano Du Perac -
Publisher:Lorenzo Vaccari (Italian, active Rome, ca. 1575–1608).

Du Pérac (1525-1604) was a French architect and garden designer who had studied engraving under Antonia Lafreri, to who's Speculum Magnificentiae he contributed.The prints were published in the same year as the set by Battista Pittoni. While Pittoni works closely to the work of Hieronymus Cock, Du Pérac shows his own designs with an accurate and true depiction. Du Pérac represents as no other the lively renewal and interest in sixteenth century Rome, his prints form a a key source for the state of the Roman monuments at that time.
