Observations sur les antiquites de la ville d'Herculanum (1754)

The first detailed observations and drawings of Herculanum by the French architect Jerome Charles Bellicard (1726-1786) are HERE



 The Met Museum in New York has his travel notebook that shows that this sketch of his was a direct observational record.
