Abstract :
Catalogue of 17th c. Italian drawings of antiquities in Rome, mainly collected by Carlo Antonio dal Pozzo, the brother of Cassiano dal Pozzo who initiated the 'Museo Cartaceo'. A diverse range of antiquities is catalogued : inscriptions, reliefs, sculpture, sarcophagi, manuscript illuminations, gold-glass, gems, ivories, lamps, metalwork, and 'instruments of martyrdom'. Almost all the drawings are to be found in the Mosaici Antichi album in the Royal Library at Windsor. They range widely in variety of technique and hands. Information is given on watermarks, annotations and type of mount. Literature is given both for the drawings and for the subjects they portray. A biographical index of collectors, antiquaries and artists referred to helps place this part of the Paper Museum in the context of contemporary cultural and aesthetic concerns. ;
