Antonio Francesco Gori



Antonio Francesco Gori (1691 – 1757) started work on the Museum Florentinum, a comprehensive visual record of the Medici and other collections in Florence of antiquities of all kinds; the project eventually extended to twelve folio volumes, published 1731-1766. Pictured are front and back views of Dei Praestitis Signumex Aere.
