Jean Barbault designed all of the plates in Tome III, completed in 1763, which depict modern monuments in Rome. This Tome was the third in a series of three books on Roman monuments and artifacts. The first two books concentrated on Antique Roman monuments and objects. Short descriptions accompany most plates. Among the monuments represented are St. Peter's Plaza and Basilica, the Church of St. Jean de Lateran, the Santa Maria Maggiore, the Basilica de Santa Croce, the Navonna Plaza, the Spanish Steps, the Borghese Palace, the Farnese Palace, the Barberini Plaza, and the Trevi Fountain.
