The seasons: in four books, by the late James Thomson, with the life of the author, to which are added notes, illustrations, & a complete index, by George Wright , printed for J French, T Hookham, J Mathews, and J Bell, M Follingsby, T Axtell, G Street, & T Street. The book ends with a lengthy account of Constantius' campaign against Magnentius and the latter's defeat in the battle of Mursa, and a summary of the career of the caesar Gallus. Zosimus’ main source in this book is the Universal History by Eunapius. There may be a second source, however, perhaps an epic poem, about the war against Magnentius.

  Thomson's name, however, was retained upon the public advertisements of the opera as author of the ‘Ode’ (presumably ‘Rule Britannia’), and the song appeared with his initials attached to it in the second edition of a well-known song-book, ‘The Charmer’ (Edinburgh, , p. ). As if putting England at this time in a nutshell were even possible! Still, the folks over at have given it a good try. Here, you can find links to information about the history, culture, and famous figures, plus side-by-side translations of four old Germanic poems, "Deor," "The Seafarer," "The Wanderer"and the Old Norse "Havamál.".
