Observations on the Topography of the Plain of Troy
Observations on the Topography of the Plain of Troy. And on the Principal Objects Within, and Around It Described, Or Alluded To, In the Iliad. That the System of M. De Chevalier, so long upheld, is founded on a most ERRONEOUS TYPOGRAPHY. And also, that the Two Sources, denominated the Warm, and the Cold, Spring, on which his System materially rests, Do Not Present Any Contrast; but are Exactly Alike, In Point of Tempature; that is, Cold. With a map. In Which the Topgraphy Set Forth by M.. De Chevalier, is contrated with the several Statements of Three other Travellers in the Troad. Also, a Sketch of the Western Part of the Region of Mount Ida.
