Hand-coloured etching by Peter Fabris (active 1768-1779). Illustrated plate from William Hamilton's study of Italian volcanoes, 'Campi Phlegraei' (published Naples, 1776). A view of Lacco, part of the island of Ischia, showing (1) Mount Vesuvius, (2) the Point of Misenum, (3) the island of Procida and (8) a tufa rock, situated in the bay of Lacco, known as the Triglia.
