When George Dennis’s ‘Cities and Cemeteries of Etruria’ was first published, it was without question the most complete and authoritative 19th-century account of the Etruscan civilization. Even to today, much of the ancient Italian people’s culture and life is a mystery, but Dennis provided important research and studies on early Etruscans. Much of the work relates to ancient architecture, describing grottos, amphitheaters, cemeteries, and even decorative sarcophaguses. Dennis gained his understanding of this civilization through his journey made from ancient Etruscan ruins in the 1840s.

 

This 1883 third edition, which is a reissue of the expanded second edition, is profusely illustrated throughout with in-text engravings, many drawn by Dennis himself, and four folding maps – very impressive work! An according to Allibone, this work is

“a valuable storehouse of classical and antiquarian lore to every scholar”.
