[Le Fontane Del Giardino Estense In Tivoli]

Description: Photographs of prints from "Le Fontane Del Giardino Estense In Tivoli," by UNT Special Collections. This is the fourth part of a print series showing the main fountains, water sources, and gardens in and around Rome. The production of this book is a mystery to our staff. It looks to be a collection of separate prints that were poorly bound, with many of the pages exceeding the size of the book, and having to be unfolded to view the full page. The first image is of the title page, which is white with red stripes, the title dispersed throughout the first three sections. The rest is filled up by other wording relevant to the book. Image 2, print on a page titled "Vedvta Del Palazzo Dal Piano Del Giardino Con Le Sve Fontane." The black and white print is extended out of a book page, and is of a big garden consisting of trees on a hill in front of a large building, stairs descending in the middle of the expanse trees, and the title under the print. Image 3, print on a page titled "Fontana Di Venere In Vna Delle Cammere Vltime Del Palazzo." The black and white print is a giant room with a large illustration expanding the length of the back wall, with an ornate frame, a statue on each side of it. On two sides of the room is a bust resting on a bench, two people standing on the left shorter than the bust.
