By ROBERT STUART, 4to. many fine plates, plates, 18s
"An able and highly readable (and cheap) volume on the transactions of the Romans in Scotland, and the remains they have left behind them in that part of the island. The little that is known of the acts of the Romans in Scotland, and of the state of the people in that age, is stated by Mr. Stuart in a graceful and flowing narrative. The view which he gives of the country, at the time when it was yet a sylvan wilderness, occupied by tribes not much different from those of Missouri and Araucania, is like a chapter in some beautiful romance. The roads and camps are all traced carefully, even unto Ptoroton and Bona, (Burghead and Loch Ness,) and an ample chapter at the end is devoted to the wall of Antoninus. The scholar has here a satisfactory account of the Roman Antiquities of Scotland, illustrated by numerous draughts (in Lithography); while the general reader is presented with a work which he may peruse for the sake of its information, without ever feeling it in the least dull."-Chambers's Journal.

The acute and sensible remarks-the high tone of moralityare very admirable and exemplary; and we refer those who desire to elevate their understandings to a guide so learned and philosophical as the author of these volumes."-Edinb.
