Pompeii

By Harris, Robert

London: Hutchinson, 2003. "A sweltering week in late August. Where better to enjoy the last days of summer than on the beautiful Bay of Naples? All along the coast, the Roman Empire's richest citizens are relaxing in their luxurious villas. The world's largest navy lies peacefully at anchor in Misenum. The tourists are spending their money in the seaside resorts of Baiae, Herculaneum and Pompeii. Only one man is worried. The engineer Marius Attilius Primus has just taken charge of the Aqua Augustus, the enormous aqueduct which brings in fresh water to a quarter of million people in nine towns around the bay. Springs are failing for the first time in generations. His predecessor has disappeared. And now there is a crisis on the Augusta's sixty-mile main line--somewhere to the north of Pompeii, on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius." The novel author builds up the pressure, describing the two days before the eruption in A.D.79. in credible detail.. Hardcover. New/New.

Pompeii and Herculaneum: The Glory and the Grief (Ancient Cities of Art)

By Brion, Marcel

New York: Crown Publishers, 1960. The sites dramatically obliterated by lava two thousand years ago; but miraculously not destroyed - simply entombed. Marcel Brion, as historian, novelist and art critic brings to colorful life this bustling first century metropolis. The tremendous drama of the earthquake in 62 A.D., and the tragedy of the holocaust 17 years later, are empathetically presented. Brion also recounts the painstaking task of removing the `protective' layer of lava which revealed - as if a clock had abruptly stopped - this Graeco-Roman city beneath. Over 180 photographs, with many in color, were taken especially for this book and include objects rarely, if ever seen, even by visitors to the archaeological museum in Naples. {NOTE - large heavy volumes wighs over 1 kg] . 1st US Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Jacket. Illus. by Photographs By Edwin Smith.
