Ancient peoples appear to be of great interest for research, as many of them were scattered about vast territories and made an important contribution on history of a number of present-day countries. Their religion, culture and traditions were transmitted through the centuries, giving their peculiar traces and traits to neighbouring nations. Celts were one of those people whose tracks are discovered throughout the whole Europe. This volume by Sir Edward Anwyl (1866 –1914), a Welsh academic, specializing in the Celtic languages, offers detailed information about Celtic religion and civilization in pre-Christian times, gods and smaller deities, priesthood and other-world.
In addition to the plates, there is a headpiece on p.  and a tailpiece vignette signed AB on p. 38 "Twenty-five copies of this Book have been printed on Japanese Vellum for sale"--P. [ii] Robert Holmes Collection
