Second Edition, with an Index. Post 8vo, 168. "When we perceive the amount of original research and curious reading which the author brings to bear on the subject, his precise arrangement and scrupulous accuracy, then it is that we feel constrained to say that we have already had books enough of loosely compiled anecdote, and that Mr. Cunningham has in this Handbook laid the foundation of what we really want about London--something systematised, defined, and ascertained."

ADVERTISEMENT

TO THE PRESENT EDITION.

In the advertisement to the first edition of this work, I observed that I had endeavoured to place myself in the position of a well-informed guide seeking to give a stranger in London every requisite information respecting lodgings, eating-houses, places of amusement, &c.; of one whose aim it had been to point out those features of the metropolis best worth seeing, with the way in which they might be seen to the best advantage.

In this new edition I have sought to carry out the same intention-have made many additions and corrections—and have brought up (as far as I have been enabled), all useful information to the day of publication. Indeed, that portion of the Introduction, entitled “ General Hints to Strangers,” has been materially, and, I hope, usefully enlarged.

For other particulars, and for a more detailed

and historical account of antiquarian London, and of streets and places no longer existing, I must refer the reader to the “Handbook for London, Past and Present.”

PETER CUNNINGHAM.

VICTORIA ROAD, KENSINGTON,

May 17, 1853.
