Nations, edited and enriched with notes by Dr. Latham. This immortal work was long out of print, and you have conferred a benefit on Science, especially on Ethnology, by publishing a new edition of it. Mr. Quaritch, Publisher, Leicester Square.
I am, yours, truly, R. CULL. SIR,_I am much obliged to you for sending me Prichard's Eastern Origin of the Celtic Nations by Dr. Latham. This new edition of Prichard's Celtic Nations, seems (as far as I have had time to look into it) a very great improvement upon the old one, and contains twice the quantity of matter. Llangadwaladr, Anglesey, July 1, 1857.
Yours obediently, J. H. WILLIAMS. “ Dr. Prichard's greater work is too well known for it to be necessary for us to do more than introduce the present new edition to the reader. But this volume is not merely a reprint; it contains a large amount of original matter. For instance, nearly a hundred pages are devoted by Dr. Latham to the Celtic nations of antiquity; and anotber long supplementary chapter discusses several questions collateral to the main one. We have been struck with the fact, that a topic treated with great depth of learning is yet made of intense interest to general readers."-Clerical Journal. 1126 TOLAND'S (John) Miscellaneous Works, with Life by Des Maizeaux, 2 vols. 8vo. old calf, rare, 12s
