About this Item

Second edition, augmented and revised, 8vo, pp. xii, 388pp. plus errata; fingernail-size chip from top of spine (not affecting any lettering), hinges cracked; all else good in original green cloth, gilt-lettered spine gilt. A translator of Cervantes and a historian of Buckinghamshire, this appears to be the author's only philological work, drawn partially from that of Prichard and Welsford, chiefly as it relates to the Sanskrit and its affinity with the Celtic race, an "eastern tribe and kindred with those nations who dwell in India.".
