In addition to the books that I have elsewhere had occasion to mention as of great use to an editor of Caesar, I have now to record no slight obligations to the magnificent work entitled "Géographie historique et administrative de la Gaule Romaine" by M. Ernest Desjardins. An important contribution to Keltic history will be found in Johann Gustav Cuno's “ Vorgeschichte Roms," erster Theil, " die Kelten."
The two maps accompanying this edition are taken on an abridged scale from Napoleon's Atlas. I have added no special plans, but have endeavoured to make my notes sufficiently explanatory to enable a careful •reader to construct for himself a rough sketch of the principal localities mentioned in the first two books.
