Excerpt

This book was planned as a companion volume to the Companion to English History (Middle Ages), edited by Mr.Barnard. That it follows the early work after a considerable lapse of time is due to the fact that it has been written by a single author instead of a number of contributors. The subjects treated are, for the most part, the same; but it has been though desired to deal in the present volume only with such aspects of Roman life as could be illustrated from material remains, and to exclude those which may be adequately studied in manuals unprovided with illustrations. The author desires to express his obligations to Professors Cichorius, Delbrück, Haverfield, Puchstein, and Schneider, Dr. T. Ashby, Major Schramm, and Horace Sandars, Esq., F. S. A.; and the following publishers, Messrs. Fontemoing & Cie Herr Wilhelm Engelmann, Messrs. Giesecke & Devrient, Signor E. Loescher, Mr. B. T. Batsford, Herr Georg Reimer, for permission to use illustrations and other services rendered. The bibliographies appended to each section of the work are not intended to give a complete list of works dealing with the subject, but to direct the reader who desires to make a further study to fuller sources of information. Many of the subjects treated have been much discussed in recent years, and where the results of such research have not yet been incorporated in standard works of reference the reader is directed to such periodical publications, &c., as may be consulted with advantage.
