Unknown to Julius Caesar, Rouen was founded by the Gaulish tribe of the Veliocasses, who controlled a large area in the lower Seine valley, which retains a trace of their name as the Vexin. They called it Ratumacos; the Romans called it Rotomagus. Roman Rotomagus was the second city of Gallia Lugdunensis after Lugdunum itself. Under the reorganisation of the empire by Diocletian, Rouen became the chief city of the divided province of Gallia Lugdunensis II and reached the apogee of its Roman development, with an amphitheatre and thermae of which the foundations remain. In the 5th century, it became the seat of a bishopric, and later a capital of Merovingian Neustria. Condition: Disbound, with repairs to the text block edge. Generally firmly bound, although with some leaves working loose. Half title and rear endpaper has handling marks, and copperplate ink inscription in french. Bright throughout the rest of the text, and generally clean, aside from the occasional marginal tide mark. Overall: GOOD ONLY due to being disbound..
