Celtic Linguistics 1700 - 1850 is a set of reprinted texts showing the growth of this subject during a key period in its history. Setting off from the antiquarian search for origins during the Renaissance, the texts trace the development and refinement of the subject until the introduction of the methods of comparative philology in the mid-nineteenth century. As the source of many modern popular conceptions of Celtic languages, the texts are of current as well as historical relevance.
