“Pompeii, The day a City Died”, a history by Robert Etienne. A lavishly illustrated reconstruction of what Pompeii must have looked like in the days before that fateful eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.Jen
good information, lots of pictures. Having been to Pompeii before reading this book, I definitely learned more than what I had heard on my tour, though some of it was repeat information. I imagine the later editions of the book are more helpful.
