They record Vander Poel's excavations in the Casa di Meleagro, and the neighboring Casa del Duca d'Aumale, Casa del Centauro and the Vicolo del Fauno, his soundings throughout the site and the state of the house in this period. Plans and architectural drawings constitute the rest of the subseries. Of particular interest are the reconstruction drawings of room decoration commissioned by Vander Poel.
