Notes

1) ‘Although the editor ... has assumed the character of a traveller, and writes as if she had actually visited the scenes she attempts to describe, it will be evident ... that the volume is merely a compilation from various authors ... the most agreeable mode of conveying information to the young reader’ (Preface).
