THIS SERIES brings together leading scholars to present the first comprehensive collection of primary-source materials, in English translation, on the structures, history, arts, and culture of this major world city.
TITLES range from print-first to born-digital volumes. The forthcoming volumes in the series (Ancient, Medieval and Renaissance) will take full advantage of the latest digital technologies to offer free, open-access bibliographies, online galleries of photographs, prints and paintings, ground plans and elevations. Interactive Google mapping and imaging in Google Earth will present the city with the best topographical tools currently available. Individual chapters will be published as completed and offered as fully searchable PDF downloads at very reasonable prices. Final print volumes will then be published.
THESE VOLUMES will be ideal for the scholar, student, and traveler as an introduction to - and an important milestone for - the current state of knowledge on the city of Naples and its environs. The series includes:
