Raccolta de piu belli ed interressanti Dipinti Musaiei ed altri monumenti rinvenuti negli Scavi di Ercolano, di Pompei, e di Stabia che ammiransi nel Museo Nazionale.

Naples, Tarallo e Paderni: 1871.

An elegant pictorial survey of antiquities excavated from Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabbia, in the collection of the National Museum in Naples. The objects include marble and bronze sculptures, silver, jewelry, lamps, pottery, glass, mosaics, murals, and other decorations. Most of the plates are printed in black, but several are printed in colored ink, including an exquisite plate of a cameo glass two-handled cinerary urn printed in blue.

Hardcover. 9"x11.5", title page, 165 steel-engraved plates (several folding), 2 pages of Index. Lacking the last 2 Index pages -most of the plates do not have captions, so for the most part only the objects in the first 74 plates (the ones we have index pages for) can be identified. Ex-library, with a perforation on the title page and stamps on the backs of the plates. Minor internal soil. Bound into new plain cloth covers with a leather spine label.
