As low as $200.00

The Houses and Monuments of Pompeii by Taschen Publishing, chronicles brothers Fausto and Felice Niccolini’s archaeological footing of the 19th century excavations at Pompeii. Making use of the newly introduced technique of color lithography, they documented the buildings, frescos, statues, as well as its most ordinary everyday objects of Pompeii buried in just 24 hours by the catastrophic eruption of Vesuvius and preserved for over 1,600 years under a mantle of volcanic ash. The Niccolini’s goal was to illustrate all aspects of life in the antique city. Their publication, Le case ed i monumenti di Pompei, which was issued in installments between 1854 and 1896 in Naples, presented over 400 color plates providing not only views, maps, and ground plans of the city and its public buildings, but also offered unprecedented access to Pompeii’s private residences.
