page 4

Preface sources of Cypriot history were made accessible to Englishmen in their own tongue. Of so desirable a work I offer this volume as a small instalment. But that dedications are out of date it would certainly be inscribed, with affectionate respect, to F. M. VISCOUNT WOLSELEY, under whose wise and spirited rule Cyprus entered on a new era of peace and prosperity. LARNACA, December 12, 1895. NOTE TO THE SECOND EDITION For this second edition I have recast Chap. Ill with the help of Mariti's later Dissertation on the Ancient City of Citium (Livorno, 1787), the rest of which I have condensed as Chapter XXIX. Mariti's scheme allowed no more than a couple of pages to the Sieges of Nicosia and Famagusta, so I hope the reader will welcome the two narratives with which, by way of an appendix, I have completed the volume. I prefix to them notes on their authors, as well as on other less known accounts of these most noteworthy events. C. D. C. THE ATHENAEUM, October ι, 1908.
