George Dennis's Cities and Cemeteries of Etruria, first published in 1848, was the most complete and authoritative 19th-century English language account of the ancient Etruscan civilisation, and is still today "a valuable storehouse of classical and antiquarian lore to every scholar" (Alibone I 493). This third edition is a direct reprint of the second revised and expanded edition of 1878. The work is profusely illustrated with wood engravings, many of them taken from the drawings of George Dennis himself, who was an accomplished artist as well as a scholar.
