Victorian Travellers Guide to 19th Century England and Wales: Containing Charts of Roads, Railways, Interesting Localities, Views of Scenery and a Comprehensive List of Hotels.
Cloth, 8vo, xxiv, 544 pp. "This book is a comprehensive illustrated guide to the outstanding landmarks and treasures along the main roads of the national network. It covers an enormous variety of subjects: not only railways, but hotels, and scenic views of the country. To have given all the roads of England within the limits of such a volume was obviously impossible. Only the main roads have therefore been described, although the distances between places on the various tours by the cross-roads are very generally given. By reference to the maps and charts, the routes by the cross-roads will readily be ascertained, and by turning to the index, the reader will be directed to the pages where all the places of any importance are described. The names, position, and distances of the various places have been copied from the maps of the Ordnance Survey; and the same valuable authority has been the basis of the several charts and district-maps with which the volume is illustrated. The names of the proprietors of the various mansions described have been carefully compared with Burke's Peerage, Baronetage, and History of the Landed Commoners. The memorable incidents mentioned in connection with the various localities have been carefully selected from the best county histories and other topographical works of authority. The population is according to the last census of 1861." - from the blurb. Contents age-toned, otherwise Fine in Fine dustwrapper. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE-06005
