THE
LAST DAYS OF POMPEII

BY
SIR EDWARD BULWIER LYTTON, BART.

"Such is Vesuvius! and these things take place in every year. But all eruptions
which have happened since would be trifling, even if all summed into one, compared
to what occurred at the period we refer to. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
"Day was turned into night, and light into darkness;-an inexpressible quantity of
dust and ashes was poured out, deluging land, sea, and air, and burying two entire
cities, Herculaneum and Pompeii, while the people were sitting in the theatre."— Dion Cassius, lib. lxvi.
