The design of this volume is to bring together descriptions of Romano-British tesselated pavements which lie scattered through the writings of a great number of separate authors, to add the author's own observation of the pavements themselves, and to present authentic copies, in plain and coloured engravings, of as many as possible. Scarce and desirable.
