The Portland Vase: The Extraordinary Odyssey of a Mysterious Roman Treasure

By Brooks, Robin

New York: HarperCollins, 2004. For thousands of years an enigmatic and astonishingly beautiful piece of Roman art has captivated those who have come in contact with it. Made before the birth of Christ, the Portland Vase, as it is called, is renowned for both its beauty and its mystery. In The Portland Vase, Robin Brooks takes us on a vivid journey across Europe and through the centuries, as this delicate piece of glass, less than ten inches in height, passes through the hands of a stunning cast of characters, including the first Roman emperor, Augustus; a notorious tomb raider; a reckless cardinal; a princess with a nasty gambling habit; the ceramics genius Josiah Wedgwood; the secretive Duchess of Portland; and a host of politicians, dilettantes, and scam artists. Rich with passion, inspiration, jealousy, and endless speculation, the story of The Portland Vase spans more than two thousand years and remains one of the art world"s greatest enigmas. . 1st US Edition.

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.
