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 and scholar.

Shipped and insured [courier liability] by recorded delivery.

N.B. Island destinations/remote areas may incur additional
