Ueber die Ruinen Herkulaneums und Pompeji.
Nebst einer kurzen Beschreibung von dem Schauspielen der alten Römer und Griechen. Mit Kupfern. Gotha, Carl Wilhelm Ettinger, 1791. 8vo. (6),+ 196, (1) pp.+ 8 engr. plates. The title with engr. vignette. Contemporary half calf, gilt spine with beige label, upper joint worn, yellow edges. Owner's signature of C. Nordenfeldt and S. Annerstedt, the latter dated 1901. Garcia 7304. Furchheim p. 50. Steiner 214. Holzmann-Bohatta IV, 7128. This is a separate issue, with a new title leaf, of the third part of the German translation of Saint-Non's large "Voyage pittoresque", translated by Johann Heinrich Keerl (1759-1810). The German translation was issued in 12 parts between 1789 and 1806. The parts on Sicily (parts 11-12) were also issued in a separate edition. Holzman-Bohatta gives Denon as author, while Furchheim and Garcia gives Keerl as editor. The name of Vivand de Denon (1747-1825) as author is quite reasonable, as he accompanied Saint-Non's journey as an expert, and he is probably the author to large parts of the text. This part was also translated into Italian under the name of Keerl, "Sulle rovine d'Ercolano, e Pompeja con una breve descripzione degli spettacoli degli antichi Romani e Greci", Gotha 1791 (Cicognara 2677)
