Notes
Content: Bathing in Rome was a communal activity. Public baths could include libraries and lecture halls. Baths would contain a dressing room, a frigidarium containing a cold-water pool and a warm room called a tepidarium. The caldarium had a hot water tub and the laconicum was a room which provided hot steam. The hypocast system was used to heat the baths.
Content: Numbers (1-14) printed on image. Printed on border: "Massias & Durin lith." "Imp. Firmin Didot, cie. Paris." Written on border: "Racinet [Racinet, A. (Auguste), 1825-1893]."
