The baths of the Romans explained and illustrated by Charles Cameron, 1772
It’s a documentary book about different baths of different roman emperors. There is a chapter for each roman emperor it documents, each beginning with a short explanatory text about this particular roman emperor and their „style“ followed by lots of illustrations, documenting different aspects of their baths.
The illustrations are line drawings that are often quite big, normally occupying a whole page, some even spanning over two pages. They are scattered throughout the whole book, followed by a bigger collection of illustrations of Constantine’s baths, since he had the most baths built for him I assume.
The illustrations are all labeled with the corresponding emperor as well as a number in Romans Numerals.
The illustrations occupy a really important role, since this book tries to show an exact representation of different roman baths, enabling easy comparison between them.
