Customer Review

on 17 October 2011
This tiny, apparently modest Book offers actually a GORGEUS Plenty of high inspired Photographs taken on the Getty Villa and sorrounding Gardens in a for an european reader rather unexpected place: Malibu (California) and allows an outstanding Insight in the botanic, architectonical and artistic Treausuries that this true 1/1 scala Reconstruction of the Herculaneum's Villa dei Papiri bears. The short commentaries offered in the Introduction-Chapter about History and significance of this roman "cappriccio" of an american Oil-Billionaire transformed now in a Museum an research center on Greek and Roman Antiquity at the best world-quality among his partners here in old Europe are well-balanced and instructive, but the commentaries attached to all the single, carefull pictured Trees, Flowers etc. etc. are simply amazing: they bear the very very best of this troughout fine and sophisticated little Book, that allows us to travel in Time inmmediatly to the Splendor of imperial Rome. I give this Book absolutely a privileged place on my Library!
