Up: Kinematical data on

1. Introduction

We have recently begun to present kinematical measurements from absorption spectroscopy on early-type galaxies (Simien & Prugniel 1997, hereafter Paper I); these data are intended to contribute to the study of several structural and evolutionary issues. As part of our continued effort to get reliable velocity dispersions and rotation curves on a statistically significant sample of objects, we presently report on new observations on a second, and longer, list of targets.

This work follows closely the technique already described in full detail in Paper I, for both observation and reduction, and only a minimum of explanations will be given here.
