Series II.B. Writings, 1935-1997 11.3 Linear Feet
This subseries contains all the material relating to Tatiana Warscher's published and unpublished writings. Although she published very little, Warscher was a prolific writer. She produced works on Pompeian gardens, architectural marbles, several keys and concordances to important scholarly volumes and a complete overview of the city, the "Codex Topographicus Pompeianus." Unfortunately, the fact that there would always be more excavations and more discoveries at Pompeii combined with Warscher's perfectionist sensibilities prevented her from believing that any of her massive typescripts was ever complete and ready for publication.
Tatiana Warscher's life's work was the creation of the 25-volume "Codex Topographicus Pompeianus." Organized topographically, the "Codex" includes extracts from published references, Warscher's own comments and observations and photographs for each building documented. The photographic component of the work was very important and Warscher used both her own photographs and those available from vendors, such as Alinari and the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut. Warscher intended to document every excavated structure in Pompeii, but her work was constrained by limited access to certain areas of the site. The earliest extant copy of a volume of the "Codex" dates to circa 1935 and Warscher continued working on the project until her death. The "Codex" was never published but survives in variant typescript copies held by a small number of research libraries.
Various materials (circa 3,100 leaves with 3,500 photographs) related to the "Codex Topographicus Pompeianus" comprise the first section of this subseries. This includes a limited amount of material produced by Warscher herself and a much larger quantity of material added by Vander Poel. One copy of the volume entitled "Appendix: Via Mercurio" was actually assembled by Warscher herself. This is followed by copies of reconstructed Warscher "Codex" volumes, commissioned by Vander Poel. The majority of the material in this subseries, however, is material compiled by Vander Poel for a revised version of the "Codex," which he intended to publish.
Warscher's other writings follow the "Codex" materials. These are primarily unpublished manuscripts and typescripts. Vander Poel added translations, copies and notes to several items in this section of the subseries. In some instances, it is not always clear whether the typescripts are Warscher's originals or later copies commissioned by Vander Poel. The arrangement of these materials is roughly chronological.

89-101 Material for a revised and expanded version of the "Codex," 1960-1997
This appears to be a mix of original material and new material collected by Vander Poel for his intended revision of the "Codex." It includes photographic copies of pages from the original "Codex," as well as pages of text and photographs. Some of the pages of text are original with Warscher's writing, while others are Vander Poel's later additions. The same holds true for the photographs. They include Warscher's original photographs, prints from commercial vendors and photographs taken or commissioned by Vander Poel.
