1) T.p. epigraph: [––Oh, what a sweep / Of landscape lies beneath me! Hills on hills; / ––––and below / Lies the fair glen, whose broken waters flow, / Making such pleasant murmurs as delight / The lingering traveller’s ear––thus on my road / How sweet it is to rest me, and survey / The goodly prospect of my journey’d way, / And think of all the pleasures it bestowed. Southey.]; from Robert Southey, Letters Written during a Short Residence in Spain (1797), p. 35.
2) Dedicated ‘To the Right Honourable The Dowager Countess of Winterton’ [Elizabeth Richardson, née Armstrong (c.1758-1841), formerly Elizabeth Garth, wife of Edward Garth, 1st Earl Winterton (1734-1788)].
