This scarce and unusual folio sheet contains a small map of the historic region based on Ortelius and five illustrations of the rituals and customs of the ancient Celtic tribes, which include several different types of sacrifice. The map and illustrations are drawn from classical sources including Caesar, Strabo, Livius, Diodorus, and Posidonius.
Faint soil on the centerfold and a few insignificant tiny spots.
