Joannes van Doetechum (1551 - actief 1605) naar Jan Huygen van Linschoten - Coppia portoghese (di Goa) - Die staet des Ambassateurs van den Coninck van Ballag
Print originates from "Beschryving van Oud en Nieuw Rome" (Description of Ancient and New Rome). Since the Renaissance, ancient Rome has held a great attraction for art lovers and artists. In numerous publications the authors sketched a picture of the city's view. The ambitions of the Parisian François-Jacques Deseine (1699-1715) were lofty: he established himself as a bookseller in Rome and wanted to bundle all existing knowledge about the city from Latin and Italian sources in one French-language book. In 1690 he published a description of the city: it is very accurate and accurately mentions the sources. The Amsterdam bookseller François Halma translated the work into Dutch in 1704 and added copper engravings from a work he had already published: the Thesaurus antiquitatum Romanarum by Joannes Georgius Graevius from 1694-1699. The first of the three parts describes ancient Rome and the paintings in the Tomba dei Nasoni on the Via Flaminia. The other parts sketch contemporary Rome.
