racteristics will be found to consist in what Addison's Freehold calls “ the Curiosities of this great Town." Their bibliographic illustration, by quotations from Old Poets and Dramatists, Tre vellers and Diarists, presents a sort of literary chequer-work of a entertaining and anecdotic character ; and these historic glimpse are brought into vivid contrast with the Social Statistics and othe Great Facts of the London of to-day.
The plan of the book is in the main alphabetical. Districts and 1 calities are, however, topographically described; the arrangement streets being generally in a sub-alphabet. The Birth-places, Abode and Burial-places of Eminent Persons—so many sites of charme ground -- are specially noted, as are existing Antiquities, Colle tions of Rare Art and Virtu, Public Buildings, Royal and Nob Residences, Great Institutions, Public Amusements and Exhib tions, and Industrial Establishments; so to chronicle the renow of Modern as well as Ancient London. The articles describing t] Churches, Exchanges, Halls, Libraries and Museums, Palaces ar Parks, Parliament-Houses, Roman Remains, and the Tower London, are, from their importance, most copious in their details.
The utmost pains has been taken to verify dates, names, ar circumstances ; and it is trusted that no errors may be fou in addition to those noted at the close of the volume, with t changes in the Metropolis during the progress of the printi of the work.* The reader, it is hoped, will regard these inaccuraci with indulgence, when the immense number of facts sought to recorded in this volume is considered. Lastly, it has been my a to render the “Curiosities” useful as well as entertaining, and wi that view are introduced several matters of practical informati for Londoners as well as visitors.
