Two eighteenth-century manuscripts on the geography of the Levant

George Salt

Abstract

A MANUSCRIPT on my bookshelves contains a collection of geographical and other notes relating to Greece and Asia Minor. It has no title, and is unsigned. It was written during a period of years beginning before 1739, probably before 1733, and continuing at least until 1749. Among its contents are about a hundred Greek inscriptions. Some of the inscriptions attracted the interest of Professor R. Stroud, of Berkeley, when he visited Cambridge in 1977-8, and he intends to publish an article about them. For that purpose it is desirable to know what authenticity they command, in short, who wrote the manuscript. This paper records an enquiry into the question.
