Abstract

This first integral collection of the place names of this complex and interesting region is avowedly intended as a work for general interest - as such it does not claim to be exhaustive and has not been delayed until all Flurnamen could be collec­ ted; but in fact Frau has given us a thoroughly scholarly work. A highly informative introduction (5-24), adorned with seven reproductions of older maps and plans, is followed by the dictionary proper. The front matter includes maps (showing comu­ ni) of the four provincie of the region, an excellent concise bibliography of 26 items, a useful brief glossary of technical terms, and some welcome remarks on the contri­ bution of toponomastics as a discipline.
