THE FOLLOWING

ARE SELECTED,
From numerous other Testimonies,

IN FAVOR OF

THE SEVERAL EDITIONS OF THIS BOOK.

" This little volume, which we had, by some accident, mislaid, will be particularly acceptable, to those who visit Harrogate; and, who may choose to make excursions from thence, to the neighbouring towns, gentlemen's seats, &c., &c."

Monthly. Review, for October, 1785.

"Hargrove's History of the Castle, Town, and Foo rest of Knaresbrough, &c.—An entertaining little book ; which, the inquisitive traveller will find well worth his perusal.”

Gentleman's Mag., for January, 1786.

“ MR. HARGROVE, several of whose papers have enriched our magazine, (under the signature of E. H, K.) presents us with a considerably enlarged edition, of his His. tory of Knaresbrough; accompanied with a well-engraved Map, of nearly eight wapentakes; and notices, at least, 60 places, in the environs of Harrogate.

On the whole, this book appears to be executed in a manner, superior to most works of the kind; and, whilst it shews the exactness of the author, it evinces his knowledge of the antiquities of which he treats.”

Gentleman's Mag., for May, 1789.
