            The Forum of Trajan in Rome | A Study of the Monuments (California Studies in the History of Art) (3 Volume Set Complete)

Packer, James E. [Architectural Reconstructions by Kevin Lee Sarring and James E. Packer]

(Book #ID 103199)

Published by University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, California First Edition 1997. 1997.

Uniform matching first edition hard back binding in publisher's original bronze cloth covers, inset cream paper labels to the spines. Folio. 13¼'' x 10''. The largest, and most splendid of the early imperial forums, the Forum of Trajan (A.D. 112) was the acknowledged showplace of ancient Rome. Ammianus Marcellinus called the Forum 'a construction unique under the heavens, as we believe, and admirable even in the unanimous opinion of the gods'. Yet, despite its formidable ancient reputation, the Forum of Trajan has only once in the present century been the subject of a close study. This three volume publication, the result of twenty five years of labour, is the first comprehensive study ever undertaken. It includes a history of the site, an examination of all previous scholarship, a modern reconstruction of it in beautiful architectural renderings, and more. The Forum suffered a harsh fate. Its buildings probably collapsed during the earthquake of A.D. 801; from the sixteenth through the eighteenth centuries, the site was quarried for its marble. In recent times, none of the modern archaeological excavations, from the first French investigations of 1811-14 through the great campaign mounted by the Fascist Government of Italy in 1928-34, has ever been properly published. Today some of the monuments - among them the three triumphal arches through which visitors entered the Forum and the West Colonnade and Hemicycle - are still buried more than sixteen feet below the level of modern streets. Others are now completely cleared. After describing the Forum as a whole - its construction, history, use in antiquity, destruction, and excavations - Packer focuses on the buildings, the essential architectural texts for all further study. He discusses the largest building in the Forum, the law court known in antiquity as the Basilica Ulpia. Illustrations document the most important architectural elements and the present state of the site. Restored plans, sections, and elevations in both colour and black and white depict Packer's reconstructions as well as those of previous scholars. Four exterior and interior views of the principal buildings, restored in colour, provide lively visual impressions of the spatial effects and detailing. For scholarly consultation, a catalogue raisonne of the major surviving fragments, twelve appendices that discuss technical problems involved in the reconstructions, and microfiche with 416 illustrations are included. Volume I features 157 illustrations, including significant general photographs of the site, historical photographs of the excavations of 1928-34, new photographs of architectural fragments, and eleven full-colour reconstructions of the excavated buildings. Volume II contains most of the remainder of the 859 illustrations, among them new photographs of the site and reproductions of drawings made by scholars and architects of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. A folder attached to the back cover houses the microfiche, remaining in sealed polythene bag, 16 pp prospectus of the microfiche, and errata sheet. The Portfolio volume holds thirty-five drawings, twenty-four in black and white that include a plan made after the excavations of 1928-34 and a new site map prepared in 1986-87, and eleven three-colour technical reconstructions of the excavated buildings. Meticulous care has been taken with the design and production of these volumes, only 1,000 sets of which were ever made. The text of this book is printed on 90-pound sheets of Mohawk Superfine specially milled for this project. This paper is not only acid-free, but also alum- and rosin-free, with a pH level above 7.5 and an alkaline buffer that will neutralise any acidity that might develop in handling or storage. Accelerated ageing tests indicate permanence in excess of 300 years. The Portfolio illustrations are printed on 60-pound St. Lawrence Matte, also an acid-free sheet. The binding features Iris, a 100% solvent free rayon cloth made from natural fibres, with a neutral pH. It is applied over binder's board of .098 thickness with a neutral pH. The title page display type is taken from the letterpress proofs of Jan van Krimpen's Romulus, designed for the Monotype Company in 1936. The main text of Volumes I and II is set in Granjon. Chapter initials are from an alphabet designed by Gianfrancesco Cresci in 1569 for Il perfetto scrittore and based on the lettering from the Column of Trajan. The interior of the Portfolio box is constructed of binder's board of .080 thickness with a neutral pH, covered with French Paper Company 'Parchtone' material, the same paper as that used for the end papers of Volumes I and II.
