Marshall on free endpaper. 'In such a work as this, accuracy in the engraved examples is of primary importance, and care has been taken to secure this as far as possible: the author is answerable for the accuracy of those marked with his initials, which have been carefully reduced from the stones themselves, or from rubbings; others are from drawings and reduced rubbings by friends upon whose correctness the author could depend (...). This branch of archaeology has been hitherto much neglected, though it is a very interesting one, and the examples are much more numerous than is generally imagined.' (EDWARD L. CUTTS in the Preface, p.V). € 59.50 (Antiquarian)
