Beck, München, 1987.181p. ills.(B&W photographs and line drawings). Paperback. Nice copy. 'This is not a volume about Roman villas in general (.), but about villas in Italy, or more precisely in central Italy (.), and within that limited area the author's focus is on the luxurious, oestentatious and often vulgar country mansions of the crème de la crème of the Roman aristocracy. (.) 'Die Villa als Lebensform', the morst original in the book, discussing such themes as the occurrence of gymnasia, the frequency of libraries, the ubiquitous nymphaea and other aquatic extravaganzas, and the role of sculpture in villa architecture (94-140); and finally 'Die Villeggiatur der Kaiser', surveying imperially-owned country properties from Augustus to Diocletian. (.) Overlap and fragmentation between chapters is perhaps inevitable (.). But these are minor blemishes in a text which is wide-ranging in its scholarship and which displays equal deftness in deplying the literary as well as the archaeological evidence. Throughout M. is a sane, dependable and often enlightening guide through the cryptoporticus, peristyles and sumptuous halls of Italian villa architecture at its most elegant and spendthrift. M. has dug deep into the periodical literature and rescued from comparative oblivion (.); and especially welcome is the collection together in one volume of the ground-plans of these and other more familiar villas.' (R.J.A. WILSON in The Journal of Roman Studies, 1988, pp.244-45). From the library of Professor Carl Deroux. Antiquarian. N° de ref. de la librería 44437

Descripción de la librería

Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity. New books are partly in stock, partly to be ordered from publishers. We are connected to a large number of publishers and distributors, established both in the Netherlands and abroad.
