Pompeii : Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive and detailed plan of Pompeii engraved for the Society For The Diffusion Of Useful Knowledge - SDUK. The Society began in 1826, the concept of a Scottish lawyer Henry Brougham, conscious of the need for affordable publications to satisfy and educate an expanding British population of increasing wealth, literacy and travel expectations. Over 200 maps and plans were produced, first sold as part works on subscription and from 1844 in a variety of bound atlases. The plan appeared in "Complete Atlas" published by Thomas Letts. To the lower left of the main plan is a smaller 'Plan of the Coast in the Vicinity of Vesuvius'. Below the main plan are illustrations of some of the most important buildings in Pompeii and an illustrated landscape.
