Item Description: Naples: Regia Stamperia, 1760. No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. Engraving, measuring 11 x 14 ½ inches, professionally removed from volume 2 of “Le Antichità di Ercolano Esposte.” The engraving by the noted engraver Philippus Morghen, numbered 94 and entitled "Ariadne Abandoned by Theseus on Naxos,” is hand-colored ---- “Le Antichità di Ercolano Esposte” was published in 9 volumes. The series was initiated by Carlo III, King of Naples, and subsequently compiled by the Accademia Ercolanese (Herculaneum Academy) and printed by the Regia Stamperia (Royal Printing House) in Naples between 1755 and 1792. It is the first literature on the excavations of Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Stabiae, and contributed significantly to the formation of the neoclassic style which spread over Europe throughout the 18th and 19th centuries.
