A very detailed and pleasant plan of the tragic, ancient Italian city of Pompeii. There is a magnificent panoramic view of the city running the length of the plan, together with an extensive (numbered) list of notes, that pertain to the important buildings within the city itself. A unique opportunity to see how this ancient city was planned and may have looked prior to its destruction via the cataclysmic eruption of nearby Mt Vesuvius.
