Описание: A sumptuously illustrated survey of the art and architecture of this prosperous Roman town, remarkably preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 Herculaneum, located on the picturesque Bay of Naples, was buried in the same volcanic eruption as its larger neighbor, Pompeii. But while Pompeii was covered by a relatively shallow layer of loose volcanic ash, Herculaneum was submerged in deep flows of hot volcanic mud, which preserved the upper stories of buildings, as well as organic materials like wooden furnishings and foodstuffs. This oversized volume opens with an account of the city's catastrophic destruction in AD 79, and of the excavations, underway since 1738, that have brought at least a part of its treasures back to light. It then surveys the principal public buildings and private residences that have been uncovered, including the famous Villa of the Papyri, perched to the northwest of the town. The splendid decoration of these ancient structures--in particular, their wall paintings--is presented as never before, thanks to an extensive photographic campaign carried out especially for this book. With these superb illustrations complementing an authoritative text, "Herculaneum" is sure to be welcomed by all students and enthusiasts of archaeology.

Описание: An illustrated treasury of the art from Pompeii and Herculaneum, this charming gift book displays the range of fascinating objects that were created by the skilled hands of accomplished classical craftsmen.

With stunning details of frescoes, mosaics, sculpture, jewellery, glass and silverware, this little book provides an enchanting taste of the variety of art from these two cities.
This new translation brings to light the early days of scientific archaeology and the unearthing and study of Herculaneum and Pompeii as observed by the erudite and acerbic art historian Johann Joachim Winckelmann (1717-1768). His Letter, published in German in 1762, displays his extensive knowledge of geology, ancient literature, and art while offering a scathing critique of the Spanish Bourbon excavations around the Bay of Naples and of the officials involved. He further discusses these topics in his equally controversial Report of 1764.
The introduction describes the context in which these texts were written, identifies various politicians, academics, and collectors, and elucidates topics of particular interest to Winckelmann, from artifacts to local customs to the contents of ancient papyri. The illustrations, particularly those from the Bourbon publication--Le Antichit di Ercolano (1757-92)--illuminate how these monuments influenced contemporary perception of the ancient world.
Описание: An introduction to this ancient library that describes the difficult history of attempts to unwind the damaged rolls. This book discusses the texts that have been deciphered and puts them in the context of literacy and Roman society of the time. It also describes the form of books in antiquity and the papyrus sheets on which they were written.
Описание: An account of the seismic and volcanic activity leading up to the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79, as well as a detailed description of the event itself and its aftermath. The authors rely on a range of scientific, artistic and literary sources, including the eyewitness account of Pliny the Younger.
