Reader's note

Country House Library is proud to showcase a true antique gem with this decorative edition of The Last Days of Pompeii. This is historical fiction as you've never read it before! The Last Days of Pompeii describes the life and times of the Romans who lived there, this is done with a sound knowledge of archaeology and although the characters may be fictional, the scene itself is not. This is excellently demonstrated in Chapter 3 - Previous to our description of this house, it may be as well to convey to the reader a general notion of the houses of Pompeii, which he will find to resemble strongly the plans of Vitruvius; We shall endeavor to make this description as clear and unpedantic as possible. You enter then, usually, by a small entrance-passage (called cestibulum), into a hall, sometimes with (but more frequently without) the ornament of columns; around three sides of this hall are doors communicating with several bedchambers (among which is the porter's), the best of these being usually appropriated to country visitors. - fascinating to read! This title is beautiful on the inside and outside of the covers.
