ADVERTISEMENT

TO THE FOURTH EDITION.

In my advertisement to the third 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, as far as it was possible, have brought up all useful information to the day of publication.

For other particulars, as well as 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.
