Series V. New editions of early archaeological publications on Pompeii, 1796-1989 34.5 Linear Feet
Series V.N. Research on Wilhelm Zahn, Die schönsten Ornamente und merkwürdigsten Gemälde aus Pompeji, Herculanum und Stabiae, 1828-1859, 1963-1969, undated 3.2 Linear Feet
Wilhelm Zahn (1800-1871) was an architect and painter, who spent the years 1824-1827 in Italy. A substantial part of this time was spent at Pompeii studying and drawing the frescoes. His work Die schönsten Ornamente was published in six parts from 1828 to 1859 and reproduced the paintings and decorative moldings of Pompeii. It was meant to be used as a pattern book for designers and as such has drawbacks for scholars. The reproductions of the paintings are very accurate in the details, but sometimes figures are transposed and the precise original location of a painting is rarely given.
Vander Poel had prepared his "Apparatus" for Zahn, essentially an unpublished manuscript of additions of bibliography and provenance information for each plate in Zahn. Also included here are Vander Poel's earlier research materials, that is copies of his cataloging sheets and photographic copies of the plates and transcriptions and photographic copies of the text.
