‘Pompeii, Its Life and Art’ is Free eBook Today

Pompeii, Its Life and Art by August Mau is today’s Free eBook of the Day.

The historical text was created by German Archaeological Institute in Rome and originally published by The Macmillian Company in 1899.

Here is an excerpt:

In the construction of columns and many architraves large blocks were used. Previous to the time of the Roman colony these were of gray tufa, or, in rare instances, of limestone; a coating of white stucco was laid on the surface. From the advent of the colony to the time of the Early Empire, the whitish limestone was used; after that, Carrara marble.
