Vetusta Monumenta / Ancient Monuments

The society of antiquaries issued engravings of about to be lost or threatened structures in the series Vetusta Monumenta (Ancient Monuments), which ran intermittently from 1718 to 1906.The full title is "Vetusta monumenta quae ad Rerum Britanicarum memoriam conservandam Societas Antiquariorum Londini sumptu suo edenda curavit", but the volumes are normally simply listed as Vetusta Monumenta. There were various reprints of both individual papers and collected volumes, and the plates were often published separately from the text. "The seven volumes are dated 1747, 1789, 1796, 1815, 1835, 1883 and 1906 (for the fourth part of vol.7). The plates for vol. 1 were published between 1718 and 1747; plates for vol. 2 were published between 1748 and 1789; plates for vol. 3 were published between 1790 and 1796; plates for vol. 4 were published between 1799 and 1815; plates for vol. 5 were published between 1816 and 1835; plates for vol. 6 were published between 1821 and 1885; plates for the four parts of vol. 7 were published between 1893 and 1906. The distinguished engraver George Vertue was an early member and was responsible for most engravings up to his death in 1756. Each member of the Society received a free copy these are scarce as few antiquarians break books most are in library collections being only printed for members . Images 45 x 30 cm Single page

Description: 'Tria pavimenta tessellata Romani operis, animantium figuris, aliisque diversi generais ornamentis, variis coloribus eleganter depicta; quae in agro Wintertoniae, Lincolniensis comitatus oppidi, prope fluvius Trentam et Humbram anno MDCCXLVII primum reperiebantur. His quartum est adjunctum, apud Roxby vicinum oppidum, sed nondum penitus retectum. Tria priora ex his pavimentis contigua fere sibi invicem locabantur, quorum primum tridinio fuisse substratum conjectari licet. In medio enim Orpheus sedet citharam pulsans, quem bruta circumdant animalia cantu delinita; et in quatuor angulis totidem crateres vinarii conspiciuntur. Secundi autem partem mediam Cerer spicas, ut vcidetur dextera tenens occupat, Tertium vero cervum exhibet currentem.

Roman Helmet back view

In 1796 the son of a clog-maker in the village of Ribchester, Lancashire, made an astonishing discovery while playing on waste-ground behind their cottage. It was a magnificently ornate bronze visor-helmet comprising a hinged face-mask and a domed head-piece, and it soon became famous as the Ribchester Helmet. The helmet, dating from the 1st-2nd century, was not meant for combat but was a piece of finely-crafted prestige equipment used by elite cavalrymen in mock battles on the training ground Published Society of Antiquaries, London, Antique engraving from Vetusta Monumenta a series of illustrated antiquarian papers on ancient buildings, sites, and artefacts, mostly of Britain, published at irregular intervals between 1718 and 1906 by the Society of Antiquaries of London.
