520 2 # $a A second part was published in 1711 (on chapels and tombs), and a third in 1721 (on churches, chapels, the palazzo at Caprarola and other buildings). These two later parts owe much to G.G. de Rossi's Insignium Romae Templorum Prospectus (1684) and Disegni Di Vari E Capelle Nelle Chiese Di Roma (ca. 1690); but this first part, with its details of windows and doors, was something of a novelty, possibly reflecting teaching concerns of the Roman schools of architecture. It became widely known, and may well have influenced projects in Britain such as Thomas Archer's work for the Duke of Shrewsbury and Francis Smith's designs for country houses. The plates show structures in chronologic order, with an emphasis on sections and mouldings. The images are all scaled. The architects represented with most images are Michelangelo, Borromini, Bernini and G.A. de Rossi; others included are Antonio da Sangallo, Raphael, Cortona, G. Fontana, C. Fontana, A. Labacco, C. Arcucci, N. Sebregundio, G.M. Baratta, Baciccio, G.B. Crescenti, Domenichino, O. Furiani, C. Rainaldi and Matt. de Rossi. The text of Rossi's address 'A Gli Amatori Delle Belle Arti' includes a list of his firm's publications, updating the 1700 Indice delle stampe.
