Ancient Rome: Monuments Past and Present (Monuments Past and Present) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

[series copy]

The Monuments Past and Present series explores the ancient regions of Rome, Greece, and Pompeii with an eye toward contrasting what they were with what they are today. Important monuments and districts are presented with overlays that clearly depict how these notable ancient sites look today and how they may have appeared when first built. These titles are excellent resources for travelers, students, and anyone else interested in the fascinating histories of these ancient regions.

Beginning with the Colosseum, the symbol of "The Eternal City," this volume explores twenty-four significant ancient landmarks such as the Roman Forum, Circus Maximus, the Pantheon, and the Appain Way.

Book News Annotation:

Two dozen cites from the Imperial City are illustrated by full- page color photographs of the modern ruins that can be overlaid with transparencies that add the features thought to have been lost from the original. Facing text and a brief history of Roman architecture support the collection. The wide pages (11 x 8) are bound with wire ring to lay flat. The reconstructions are updated from the 1990 edition.
