Robert Rive, born in Britain, lived and worked in Naples for most of his life. He was renowned as a topographical photographer and his iconic photos of Pompeii represent the earliest and most comprehensive documentation of the ancient doomed city, destroyed by volcanic ash in 79 AD. The city lay buried for over 1800 years until excavation work began in 1748. This album contains a stunning collection of photographs recording the architecture, sculpture, basilicas, temples, theatres, avenues of Pompeiiís previously buried past. Presently there is a major exhibition at the British Museum in Bloomsbury London Life and Death in Pompeii and Herculaneum. Riveís work would be a major acquisition for collectors of Pompeii material. Bookseller Inventory # 676_13
