Unstated, 0, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

Multi-lingual guide to Pompeii, 40 B&W photos, decorative card wraps. About 19 centuries ago, on the lower slopes of Vesuvius stood Pompeii, at that time on the seashore. It had no gorgeous monuments to rival those of the imperial Rome, but it had pretty and even luxurious houses, refined after the Hellenic traditions and graceful style: pleasant see-town the topographie of which can be exactly reproduced. This place went on happy and quiet, when on the 5th. Of February 63 a C., as suddenly as unexpected, a dreadful earthquake destroyed it to the ground. 47pp.
