500 # # $a The unnumbered leaf is the title page. The 52 numbered leaves include in one sequence leaves of text ( 2, 16-19) and leaves of plates. The leaves of plates include two leaves carrying bis plates (6,7); so that there is a total of 47 leaves carrying 49 plates. Twenty-three of the numbered leaves of plates are single (1 [engr. dedic.], 8, 24-41, 49-51) and 24 are double (3-7, 9-15, 20-23, 42-48, 52). In The Royal Academy's copy most of the single leaves of numbered plates have been pasted together to form double sheets (pl. 24/25 - 40/41 and 49/50).

520 2 # $a In the title 'Augustorm' is corrected by a cancel-slip reading 'Augustorum'. The plates show reconstructions of the arches or details of their relief sculptures. They are largely a conflation by De' Rossi of plates from Bartoli's Admiranda Romanarum antiquitatum ac veteris sculpturae vestigia (1693) and from J.M. Suares's Arcus L. Septimii Severi Aug. Anaglypha (1676), with a few apparently new plates based on a sketch-book by one of the Sangallo family. 'It is singular', wrote Stendhal, 'that so useless a thing should give such great pleasure; the style of the triumphal arch is an architectural conquest'. Not only were commemorative arches erected throughout the Roman empire, but in modern times the form was revived - as at Lorsch Abbey (ca. 800), in Naples at the Castelnuovo (ca. 1452-71), at Paris in Porte St Denis (ca. 1670), the Arc de Triomphe (1806-36) and the Arc du Carrousel (1806), and at London in the Marble Arch (1825-8) and Constitution Arch (1827-8); and an echo of the form sounds in the façades of Alberti's church of St Francis ('tempio Malatestiano'), Rimini (ca. 1450), Salvi's Trevi fountain, Rome (1732-57) and Adam's garden front of Kedlestone Hall, Derbyshire (ca. 1760).
