Vander Poel (Halsted) Campanian collection
Series V. New editions of early archaeological publications on Pompeii, 1796-1989 34.5 Linear Feet
Series V.C. Material related to the work of Giuseppe Fiorelli, 1854-1979, undated 12.9 Linear Feet
Giuseppe Fiorelli (1823-1896) was the scholar responsible for establishing scientific excavation at Pompeii. Given Fiorelli's dominant role in the history of Pompeiian archaeology, it comes as no surprise that Vander Poel planned to update and expand several key works by this author and gathered a significant amount of other material related to Fiorelli and his work.
As the primary project related to Fiorelli, Vander Poel intended to create a new edition of Pompeianarum Antiquitatum Historia. Fiorelli had compiled and edited the original daily and weekly reports of the early excavators of Pompeii during the period from 1748 to 1859. He published this compilation as Pompeianarum Antiquitatum Historia (P.A.H.), which came out in three volumes from 1860 to 1864. The majority of the material in this subseries relates to Vander Poel's analysis and documentation of the P.A.H. volumes. The content of these volumes is invaluable, yet as published they are extremely difficult to use. They have no indices nor standard topographic references. The project of transcribing and analyzing the P.A.H. had been begun by Tatiana Warscher in the 1930's (see above Box 112) and was continued by Vander Poel since 1960. He envisioned creating indices and intended to "analyze and interpret" the work in a new four volume publication.
Vander Poel also intended to do a project involving Fiorelli's 1875 synthetic guidebook Descrizione di Pompei. This was spurred by the fact that Vander Poel gained access to an annotated copy of the book belonging to August Mau (1840-1909), one of the great Pompeian scholars of his time. Vander Poel was interested in the intersection of these two scholars' thoughts on Pompeii and commissioned a transcription and translation of Mau's notes. He also intended to add topographical analyses and documentation.
The rest of the subseries contains material related to a third work by Fiorelli, Gli scavi di Pompei dal 1861 al 1872 and other miscellaneous material related to Fiorelli.

A group of annotated insular plans housed in a case labeled as " Gli scavi di Pompei dal 1861 al 1872. Bozze: Pianta delle insulae. Napoli, 1873." However, with one exception these plans do not match those published in Gli scavi... . This group of plans may relate to Sorgente or Tascone's work on plans for the site commissioned by Fiorelli. Most of the plans are annotated in more than one hand, one of which appears to be Fiorelli's. They include plans of I 3 and 4, II 6, VI 1-3, VI 5-12, VI Ins. Occ., VII 4, VII 8, VIII 2, and VIII 5-6.
