Their locations, occupation and topics related with those buried in them were bound with regulations. The cemeteries were part of the society and on the other hand, they posed a problem of urbanism. The authors also survey the characteristics of 489 burial sites intra muros and give the facsimiles, transliteration and translations of 23 archive documents. Two separate city maps covering the cemeteries and tombs of the dignitaries are given in the pocket inside the back cover. Bookseller Inventory # 2126
