A study of Pompeiian frescoes reveals that the Vesuvian landscape of 79 AD included a vast and beautiful variety of fauna and flora. This lavishly illustrated volume combines botanical images depicted in Pompeiian art with present-day photographs of gardens in the region to give a complete understanding of the fruits, vegetables, pollens, seeds, and other plants of Pompeii. An appendix of botanical Latin names helps readers identify the plants featured in this handsome, informative book.
