by Grant, Michael;

Lavishly illustrated with photographs by Werner Forman, this book is valuable both as a guide for the visitor to Pompeii and Herculaneum and as a comprehensive description of one of the most celebrated events in the history of man." 240p. illus. bibliography. index (news clipping about Vesuvius laid in ). Reprint. Soft Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Photographs By Werner Forman.
