Bump to lower edge of rear board. Minor shelfwear to book. DJ has 1 cm tear to middle of spine. ; Since Mount Vesuvius erupted in A. D. 79, the story of the lost city of Pompeii continues to intrigue the public. Discoveries at Pompeii and the nearby village of Herculaneum include elegant villas, whole rooms intact adorned with classical motifs and exquisite frescoes-as vivid as the day they were painted-as well as skillfully laid-out gardens. Excavations began in 1748 but halted from 1954-94. Today, new funding mean that parts of the site are being opened and recorded for the first time. This book provides more than 150 new photographs by Chris Caldicott, Royal Geographic Society photographer-in-residence. Its covers such topics as the history of the city, the discovery of the remains, the town plan, the private life of Pompeii, Pompeii's design legacy, and the site today. Published in association with the World Monuments Fund, this lavish book offers readers a fresh and comprehensive exploration of Pompeii and Herculaneum. ; 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall; 192 pages

Princeton, New Jersey, U.S.A. Princeton University Press 1990 0691055491 / 9780691055497 Hardcover Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Inner hinges cracked but holding, old bookstore label on front pastedown, else Very Good, clean and otherwise unmarked. ; In tracing the emergence of the Macedonian kingdom from its origins as a Balkan backwater to a major European and Asian power, Eugene Borza offers to specialists and lay readers alike a revealing account of a relatively unexplored segment of ancient history. He draws from recent archaeological discoveries and an enhanced understanding of historical geography to form a narrative that provides a material-culture setting for political events. Examining the dynamics of Macedonian relations with the Greek city-states, he suggests that the Macedonians, although they gradually incorporated aspects of Greek culture into their own society, maintained a distinct ethnicity as a Balkan people. "Borza has taken the trouble to know Macedonia: the land, its prehistory, its position in the Balkans, and its turbulent modern history. All contribute...to our understanding of the emergence of Macedon.... Borza has employed two of the historian's most valuable tools, autopsy and common sense, to produce a well-balanced introduction to the state that altered the course of Greek and Near Eastern history." --Waldemar Heckel, Bryn Mawr Classical Review; 347 pages

39 Bowersock, G. W. MOSAICS AS HISTORY The Near East from Late Antiquity to Islam
Belknap Press 2006 0674022920 / 9780674022928 Hardcover Fine in Fine dust jacket 
Over the past century, exploration and serendipity have uncovered mosaic after mosaic in the Near East--maps, historical images, mythical figures, and religious scenes that constitute an immense treasure of new testimony from antiquity. The stories these mosaics tell unfold in this brief, richly informed book by a preeminent scholar of the classical world. G. W. Bowersock considers these mosaics a critical part of the documentation of the region's ancient culture, as expressive as texts, inscriptions on stone, and architectural remains. In their complex language, often marred by time, neglect, and deliberate defacement, he finds historical evidence, illustrations of literary and mythological tradition, religious icons, and monuments to civic pride. Eloquently evoking a shared vision of a world beyond the boundaries of individual cities, the mosaics attest to a persistent tradition of Greek taste that could embrace Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in a fundamentally Semitic land, and they suggest the extent to which these three monotheistic religions could themselves embrace Hellenism. With copious color illustrations, Bowersock's efforts return us to Syrian Antioch, Arabia, Jewish and Samaritan settlements in Palestine, the Palmyrene empire in Syria, and the Nabataean kingdom in Jordan, and show us the overlay of Hellenism introduced by Alexander the Great as well as Roman customs imported by the imperial legions and governors. Attending to one of the most evocative languages of the ages, his work reveals a complex fusion of cultures and religions that speaks to us across time. ; Revealing Antiquity; 8.1 X 6.2 X 0.8 inches; 160 pages

41 Bradley, Keith R. SLAVERY AND REBELLION IN THE ROMAN WORLD, 140 B.C. - 70 B.C.
Indiana University Press / B. T. Batsford 1989 0253312590 / 9780253312594 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing to top of textblock. DJ has minor shelfwear. ; 202 pages; In the seventy years between 140 B. C. And 70 B. C. , Rome was confronted with three major slave rebellions. Two of the uprisings occurred in the province of Sicily. The third and most memorable, led by the gladiator Spartacus, took place in Italy and posed a serious threat to the city of Rome. Bradley's work carefully describes and analyzes these rebellions in their respective contexts. In addition to examining the immediate historical context of each rebellion and the relationship of the uprisings to the overall development of Roman slavery in the second century, B. C. , Bradley offers an original analysis of the rebellions against the broad background of resistance in modern slave societies. Emphasizing the material conditions that led slaves to resist and the practical means by which their resistance was maintained, Bradley demonstrates the relationship of the Roman slave wars to other types of slave resistance.

In defining the mysteries and describing their rituals, membership, organization, and dissemination, Walter Burkert displays the remarkable erudition we have come to expect of him; he also shows sensitivity and sympathy in interpreting the experiences and motivations of the devotees.
