The Cities and Cemeteries of Etruria. Third Edition. With Map, Plans, and Illustrations
John Murray, London 1883 - Two volumes. Pp. cxxviii, 501, [1], [2] addenda & errata; xv, [1], 579, [1] errata. Wood-engraved frontispieces, numerous plates and textual illustrations, folding map, and plans (some folding), complete with half-titles. Contemporary three-quarter burgundy morocco over marbled boards, with gilt panelled spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. Minor rubbing to boards, faint marginal browning to leaves, but overall in fine condition. George Dennis's Cities and Cemeteries of Etruria, first published in 1848, was the most complete and authoritative 19th-century English language account of the ancient Etruscan civilisation, and is still today "a valuable storehouse of classical and antiquarian lore to every scholar" (Alibone I 493). This third edition is a direct reprint of the second revised and expanded edition of 1878. The work is profusely illustrated with wood engravings, many of them taken from the drawings of George Dennis himself, who was an accomplished artist as well as a scholar. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
