Beautiful view of Tivoli, north east of Rome in Lazio, taken from “Topographia Italiae …” published in Frankfurt in 1688. Merian was born in Basel in 1593, later he moved to Zurich to complete his studies and finally to Frankfurt am Main in Germany. Also expertly engraved are the Temple of Sybil and the waterfalls at Tivoli, from the Aniene River.
