I then contemplated the publication of an album similar to that previously engraved for the Senate, but other duties intervened, and the negatives have since, to my regret, lain unused. The delay was fortunate, however, since it gave opportunity for the co-operation of Dr. James Macdonald, who had made a special study of Roman Scotland, and who was associated with the investigations along the line of the Antonine Wall, directed by the Glasgow Archaeological Society. The present volume thus contains the results of the most recent researches, and the history of each stone has been critically examined by one who is well qualified for the task.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
