Description

An ample bibliography of all the works quoted in abbreviation is followed by a commentary on the first four books of Strabo's work, i.e. on his general introduction (mathematical, astronomical and physical foundations of geography, discussion with Eratosthenes, Hipparchus and others) and on his description of the Iberian peninsula, Gallia, the British Isles (Britanny, Ierne, Thule) and the Alps.
