First Sentence
The corpus of 371 inscriptions examined in this book comprises nearly all the inscriptions listed by R.A.S. Macalister in his Corpus Inscriptionum Insularum Celticarum (1945-49), other than those in Ireland and Iona (CIIC 1-317, 521-967, 1070-95), with the addition of 25 inscriptions from Brittany, plus a large number of inscriptions from western Britain and Man which were unknown to Macalister. Read the first page

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensible and amazing value 21 May 2004
I have this on inter-library loan (although it's been on my wish-list since last year - hmph!), and wished I had saved my 6.10 borrowing fee because I am now going to buy it! Stupendously erudite, very well organised and indexed, this will surely remain essential reading and reference for many many years to come, hopefully with updates as new material is discovered, and will doubtless raise many fruitful debates. Would make an excellent companion work to P. Schrijver's 1995 "Studies in British Celtic Historical Phonology" except that that work, only about 100pp longer, is practically unaffordable at 90.00. Thank you Blackwells and the Philological Society!
