About This Item

London: Penguin, 1976 "Michael Grant traces the political and economic history of Pompeii and Herculaneum - from the Greek settlement through Roman domination - with special attention to the rebuilding of the cities after their decimation by earthquake in A.D. 62. In subsequent chapters, Mr. Grant describes life in these two cities in a way that is at once scholarly and readable, focusing on architecture and artistic decoration of town and country houses, fora and public buildings, as well as religious practices, philosophical perspectives and cultural interests. 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.
