They are now republished in this volume without alteration.The reader will see that the point of view in these sketches is mainly that of a traveller guided by literary and historical attractions. Commerce and politics, the farm and the shop, science and statistics, receive no attention whatever. The writers journey to the east was a journey to scenes associated with the charms of history and poetry.The writer is encouraged to believe that this record of his rambles will revive happy memories of the old land in many readers who were born over the sea, and that it will whet the literary appetite of others and excite in them desires to visit the interesting scenes to which his feeble pen has done scanty justice.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
