LONGmans have just issued a New and Revised Edition of this book, which was
first published in 1872, and has been long out of print.

Since the publication of the First Edition numerous discoveries have been made of objects both of neolithic and palæolithic age, which have necessitated considerable additions to the original work, inasmuch as all the principal discoveries of stone antiquities that have taken place in Britain during the last quarter of a century are more or less fully recorded in the new edition. The principal additions that have been made relate to the palæolithic period, concerning which our knowledge has been much enlarged within the last twenty-five years. The new illustrations, partly borrowed from the publications of different learned societies, but to a great extent specially engraved for the work from original specimens, are upwards of sixty in number. Although to a certain extent re-written, the book still retains its original form and character, and no alteration has been made in the numbering of the figures, the new illustrations being indicated by letters affixed to the numbers.
