This work by Jennie Hall was originally published in 1922. It tells the story of the ill-fated Italian city of Pompeii that was buried in 79 AD following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The work is designed for children, and is complete with numerous illustrations and photographs. It includes chapters titled 'The Greek Slave and the Little Roman Boy' (a narrative of the events on the day the city was buried), 'Vesuvius', 'Pompeii To-Day', and 'Pictures of Pompeii'. To compliment the republication of this text, a brand new introduction on the history of Pompeii has been added.
