Title : Ruines d'un Edifice qu'on voit au Bezar d'Athênes..

Description :A copper engraved view of the ruins of Hadrian's library, at the Bazar, Athens. From Le Roy's "Les Ruines des Plus Beaux Monuments de la Grece ." Black and white, verso blank.
From: LE ROY, Julien David. 'Les ruines des plus beaux monuments de la Grece, considérées du côté de l'histoire et du côté de l'architecture', Paris, 1758. Hadrian's library was created by Roman Emperor Hadrian in AD 132 on the north side of the Acropolis of Athens.
The building followed a typical Roman Forum architectural style, having only one entrance with a propylon of Corinthian order, a high surrounding wall with protruding niches (oikoi, exedrae) at its long sides, an inner courtyard surrounded by columns and a decorative oblong pool in the middle.
The library was on the eastern side where rolls of papyrus "books" were kept. Adjoining halls were used as reading rooms, and the corners served as lecture halls.
The library was seriously damaged by the Herulian invasion of 267 and repaired by the prefect Herculius in AD 407-412.
Blackmer, Atabey
Condition : In generally good condition, small tears in outer margins, occasional soiling, age toning and foxing in margins.
