THE ENGLISH LAKES.
WITH MAPS AND ENGRAVINGS.
LONDON: LONGMANS & CO.; HAMILTON & CO.
THE "HAND-BOOK TO THE ENGLISH LAKES" having gone through seven editions since the spring of 1847 a sure proof of the estimation in which it is held by Lake Visiters-it is unnecessary now to repeat the objects which first prompted its compilation. The Publisher would merely remark that in this, the Eighth Edition, he has endeavoured, by carefully revising the letter-press, and making all requisite alterations, to render it worthy of the continued favour of Tourists. The New Map of Lake Windermere and the Table of Distances from the principal towns, villages, and stations in the district, will, he is persuaded, be practically useful to strangers.
Kendal, May, 1853.
