. . . In the foreground, at the extreme left, is the great fountain . . . of the four rivers of the world. . . . The picture, partly concealed to the right, shows the magnificent flight of steps leading from the Piazza di Spagna to the top of the Pincian Hill in front of the Church of the Trinita di Monte. . . . The picture above the last two mentioned views, shows the fountain of Trevi. Above this is St. Peters and the Vatican Palace; to the left, the dome of the College of Sapiensa; and to the extreme left, the obelisk upon the back of the elephant, which is before the Church of Minerva. . . . In the upper corner is the beautiful fountain of the triton, behind which is seen the Palace Barberini. The long picture to the right is believed to be a picturesque passage in the gardens of the Barberini Palace. . . .
