Philippo Coarelli. Pompeii. (Riverside Book Company, New York, 2002). Hardbound, 408 pages, hundreds of color images. This book is widely regarded as the most complete, informative, and beautiful one-volume title on Pompeii. More than 500 color photographs convey the remarkable richness of this provincial Roman resort town, preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. Fifteen individual houses receive detailed attention, along with the famous suburban villas, the Villa of the Mysteries and the Villa of Poppea at Oplontis. There is a section on the famous Lupanare, or brothel, and a concluding chapter on funeral practices and the many tombs that line the streets outside the city walls. New condition. An unused copy still in its shrink-wrap.

From the Collection of a Connoisseur.
