Vander Poel (Halsted) Campanian collection
Series VII. Research in Campanian Archaeology (RICA) research materials, 1724-1996, bulk, 1910-1992 98.7 linear feet, 25 flat file folders, 2 rolls
Series VII.B. Visual documentation of Pompeii, 1767-1975, undated 38.2 linear feet, 20 flat file folders, 1 roll
As a complement to his textual sources, Vander Poel also collected visual documentation of Pompeii. This visual documentation is separated by medium into three further subseries: photographs, postcards and photobooks, and prints, drawings and paintings.
Series VII.B.1. Photographs, circa 1881-1906, 1959-1975, undated 19.1 linear feet, 2 flat file folders
In conjunction with the photographs in the preceding series, this subseries provides a comprehensive visual record of the archaeological remains of Pompeii. Vander Poel was interested in photography as a medium for recording both the past and present states of preservation at Pompeii. To this end, he collected a small number of original early photographic prints, but he primarily commissioned copy work photography of large numbers of early photographs of the site. As for the current state, he commissioned new photographic campaigns, such as the detailed documentation of facades.
Arrangement note
The organization of the photographs presented in this subseries is somewhat confusing, but it reflects the different ways in which Vander Poel sorted his material. The subseries is arranged in the following sections: early photograph albums, site photographs, object photographs, copy work from archival collections and miscellaneous photographs. The site documentation is further divided into groups organized by location, thematic groups and then miscellaneous site photographs. The confusion arises from the fact that although Vander Poel generally used these categories, he did not strictly adhere to them. For example, many of the copy work photographs from a given archival collection will be grouped intact, but a portion will have been dispersed into the other categories.
box
403-405 Photograph albums, circa 1881-1900
box
403 Giorgio Sommer, Napoli, circa 1881 1 album (60 photographic prints) : albumen; 31 x 39 cm., prints 20 x 25 cm. or smaller
This album contains images of Naples and environs. Neighboring sites illustrated include Ischia, Capri, Pozzuoli, Caserta, Amalfi, Salerno, Sorrento, Paestum, Vesuvius, San Sebastiano and Pompeii.
The album has an elaborate binding and it was noted by Vander Poel as "legatura particolare per F. Niccolini Editore." The red leather album cover bears a title and framing element in high relief with brass bosses at the corners. The edges of the mounts are also colored red and decorated with gold stars.
box
404 Michele Amodio, Pompei, circa 1882 1 album (99 photographic prints) : albumen; 23 x 15.5 cm., prints 16 x 10.5 cm. or smaller
The images in this album are primarily architectural views of the site, but it also includes details of wall paintings, mosaics, statues and household goods, as well as plaster casts of bodies found in the excavations. Some photographs are labeled with the year of excavation; the latest date is 1881. Vander Poel has added annotations on the mounts.
This album is related to two other Amodio albums of Pompeii held by the Getty Research Institute (see Special Collections accession numbers 91.R.2 and 93.R.111).
box

406-410 General documentation of the site of Pompeii by location, 1960-1962, undated
Includes photographs of the site of Pompeii collected from a variety of sources. Some photographs were purchased from vendors such as Alinari, Anderson, Brogi and the DAI in Rome. Others are copy work photographs of originals held by various archives, including the Society of Antiquities, London, the British Museum and the Biblioteca in the Museo archeologico nazionale di Napoli. Most of these copies were made in the period from 1960-1964. And finally, there is original photography carried out under Vander Poel's aegis in the period from 1960-1962. The images include general views of structures, details of paintings and occasional finds associated with houses. See also Box 605, oversize Box 527* and Flat file folder 91**.

Series VII.B.3. Prints, drawings and paintings, 1767-1882, undated 18.7 linear feet, 18 flat file folders, 1 roll
Vander Poel also collected prints, drawings and paintings as part of the visual documentation of Pompeii. Although they provide less reliable documentation than photographs, these formats often have the advantage of documenting earlier stages in the excavations. Prints form the majority of the material in this subseries. They include a combination of original prints and photographic reproductions. The original prints are primarily isolated images removed from larger suites or publications or they are recent restrikes.
Arrangement note
The material is presented roughly chronologically.
