These fragmentary texts are given here in a transliterated form, and in three cases out of four the word-for-word translation is followed by a somewhat freer version. There are also full notes of a philological and illustrative character." Octavo: 393 p. with a folding diagram. Octavo. Original burgundy cloth binding, with gilt titles.
