Among the buildings depicted in Rome one can make out the Colliseum, the Pantheon and the Basilica. Latin text on verso. From "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum".

If this website is the closest I ever come to shopping in NY, NY, it has been a pleasure. I have checked the store on-line, and you may have to block me out -- it looks very tempting. It may replace my childhood fantasy of getting locked in our small town library. One little old lady and sevens floors of old books--Heaven. Thanks! - Katherine James
