Note 087
From Chapter 58 of the Decline & Fall

The curious reader may compare the classic learning of Cellarius and the geographical science of D'Anville. William of Tyre is the only historian of the crusades who has any knowledge of antiquity; and M. Otter trod almost in the footsteps of the Franks from Constantinople to Antioch ( Voyage en Turquie et en Perse , tom. i. p. 35 - 88).
