Book cover

First Page:

[Transcriber's Note:

This file is for readers who cannot use the "real" (unicode, utf 8) version of the text. The differences are primarily cosmetic, involving some fractions and the [oe] ligature common in French words.

The printed book had two kinds of headnote: keyword and mileage.

"Keyword" headers, noting the places and subjects mentioned on the page, have been placed before the most appropriate paragraph.

Each itinerary gives the "miles from" {starting point} and "miles to" {ending point}, with the numbers printed in the left and right corners of each paragraph. For this e text the numbers are shown in {braces} before the beginning of each paragraph; the place names are given at the beginning of the itinerary, and repeated as needed. Paragraphs describing side excursions do not have mileage information.

The hotel rating symbols are explained at several random points in the text, though not in the introductory section: Those with the figure ¹ are first class houses, with ² second class. The asterisk signifies that they are especially good of their class.

Errors and inconsistencies are listed at the end of the text.]

From "Scotsman," June 2, 1884.

" C. B. Black's Guide books have a character of their own; and that character is a good one. Their author has made himself personally acquainted with the localities with which he deals in a manner in which only a man of leisure, a lover of travel, and an intelligent observer of Continental life could afford to do. He does not 'get up' the places as a mere hack guide book writer is often, by the necessity of the case, compelled to do. Hence he is able to correct common mistakes, and to supply information on minute points of much interest apt to be overlooked by the hurried observer. "
