Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
See the classical structures of ancient Rome as they looked thousands of years ago through the use of transparent overlays and photographs. Some structures included areā€”the Colosseum, Caesar's Forum, the Mausoleum of Hadrian, Trajan's markets, the Circus Maximus and the Pantheon. Several photographs are devoted to the Colosseum, including aerial, exterior and interior views. A drawing and text describe how animals and gladiators were brought into the arena through a series of ramps and mechanical devices. In one show, hundreds of lions entered at one time and the roars were so loud the crowd was frightened into silence. Forums were constructed by three different Roman rulers. Only columns and rubble remain, but through the overlays we can see them again in all their glory. Although the text is rather detailed, younger children will enjoy the photographs and reconstructions. While the photographs are wonderful, the lack of an index and glossary make this book difficult to use as a reference and research resource. 2000 (orig. 1990), Vision, $29.95. Ages 12 to 18. Reviewer: Laura Hummel
Booknews
Two dozen cites from the Imperial City are illustrated by full- page color photographs of the modern ruins that can be overlaid with transparencies that add the features thought to have been lost from the original. Facing text and a brief history of Roman architecture support the collection. The wide pages (11 x 8) are bound with wire ring to lay flat. The reconstructions are updated from the 1990 edition.
