Object Details:
1 photograph : b&w ; 25.4 x 17.7 cm ( 10 x 7 in).
Notes:
Photograph is in a book with a description beneath ; printed description: "(Hosea, xii: 2.)- 'The Lord hath also a controversy with Judah, and will punish Jacob according to his ways; according to his doings will he recompense him.' It is not only true that the Lord punishes Israel according to his ways, and recompenses him according to his doings, but he treats all other nations and races and peoples the same way. In Pompeii we have a city arrested and preserved by the eruption of Vesuvius from the year A.D. 79. And there is no better place to study the history of sin and requital than in this city. Here are all the evidences of the people's guilt and abominable idolatry and licentiousness exposed to view. This city was surrounded by walls nearly two miles in circumference. Its area is about 160 acres. Nearly one-half of this has been excavated. In the above scene we are permitted to view a private house where we may see the pictures still bright and clear upon the walls."
Parts of a stone building, including three standing columns, stone and brick walls and a fresco of animals (a bull, a horse and an antlered animal)
