Evgenij: to your last par (small remark): (and I repeat the outburst

(I apologize: you seem to be only the messenger) Then again (in the
message): "GENTLEMEN"? and WHAT moral norms? Would gays be included?
and why would women excluded? WHAT morality would be required? Read
the SCRIPTs (maybe more than just the "Jewish" Bible) and you will
be shaken in your "morals" of the past centuries' mostly western
belief. Girls in good standing, i.e. Ishtar's virgins (whores?) who
had to conceive by a stranger for money to prove their fertility and
find a decent husband? Consequently the "offering" of the first born
because they were most likely the offspring of other than the
husband? and so on and on. Pompei was later, but still in the
'biblical' morals. Remarks of this kind should be
explained/understood better. Sorry for the outburst LohnM

Hi John,

I was just kidding. I should say though that the movie "Pornography: A Secret History of Civilization" is very enjoyable when they describe how the Victorian society has reacted to findings in Pompei. See for example


Do you have other explanation why this book is so expansive?


It is expensive because demand for many copies of it is low and thus costs per unit are high. Usually only university libraries purchase such books.
