This two-volume catalogue of more than 400 drawings includes depictions of portable Roman, Etruscan and Greek antiquities such as vases, lamps, mirrors, tripods, bells, armour, weights, measures, musical instruments, mirrors, brooches and jewellery, as well as a range of Egyptian and Egyptianising antiquities (from sarcophagi and mummy masks to cult statues and reliefs) and designs for Renaissance and seventeenth-century vases, candelabra, princely gold and silver tableware.

Amongst the antiquities are some of the earliest known records of Greek vases and countless objects of everyday life, making this a companion to Part A.V of the series (The Antichit Album), in which portable antiquities of almost every category to be found in the cabinets of Rome are also illustrated. Included in the modern designs for the decorative arts are works by sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Italian artists such as Luzio Luzzi, Giovanni Battista Montano, Giovanni Angelo Canini and Lelio Orsi. A comparatively recent addition to the known body of Paper Museum drawings is a group of 26 drawings of Egyptian antiquities, identified in a miscellaneous portfolio in the British Museum
