NELSON'S MONUMENT, from its Site and Elevation, and also from
being totally unobstructed, commands one of the finest, most varied, and enchanting Views in Europe.
Tourists and others wishing a correct and magnificent View of the City and surrounding country, would do well to make this their first point of attraction, as all the walks strangers could indulge in would not give them half so fine an idea of the City as they can here obtain.
ADDITIONAL ATTRACTIONS.— In addition to the many attractions, there has lately been added a magnificent ACHROMATIC CAMERA OBSCURA, very grand SOLÁR MICROSCOPE, with powerful Gregorian and Achromatic Telescopes by eminent opticians; also a splendid CosMORAMIC and DIORAMIC EXHIBITION, with Panoramic Views of Edinburgh and London, brilliantly illuminated by gas; the whole forming a place of interest and scientific amusement nowhere else to be met with. Admission to the whole ls., top view included.

BLACK'S GUIDE TO THE TROSACHS, Including descriptions of Callander and its neighbourhood, Loch
Katrine and Loch Lomond, with Twenty-Seven Illustratrations of the Scenery, by BIRKET FOSTER.
"Some of the illustrations in this pretty little volume are perfect gems of wood-engraving. The descriptions are at once ample and concise, the necessary travelling information laudably accurate."- Atlas.
“All that could be desired. Copious in all kinds of information, elegant in style, and most beautifully illustrated. We commend them to the patronage of the tourist and traveller, and hope they will soon entirely supersede those older 'Guides,' which were too often a mere compound of rant and quotation."— Witness.

BLACK'S PICTURESQUE GUIDE TO YORKSHIRE,
MAP OF THE COUNTY AND SEVERAL ILLUSTRATIONS, AND A
PLAN OF FOUNTAINS ALBEY.
“ We have several guide books before us; and name first for its compactness and completeness, Black's Picturesque Guide to Yorkshire, with a map of the county, and several illustrations. Interspersed with song and legend, rich in statistical information, and abounding in descriptions of all that can interest the tourist, this little volume, which will fall easily into one of the pockets of the traveller's tweed, ought to be the companion of all who intend strolling among the sunny wolds and picturesque dales of a county which boasts the variety as well as the beauty of its scenery." — Notes and Queries.
“A full well written Guide to all that is picturesque or of historical interest in this our greatest county. It is well arranged, well printed, well indexed, well illustrated, and furnished with an excellent map. To tourists in Yorkshire it is indispensable.”—Gardener's Chronicle.
"A compendious and portable volume of 276 pages. Great care has been exercised in the arrangement of the contents, and it possesses a comprehensive index. Like all Messrs. Black’s publications, the typography and getting-up are unexceptionable."— Teesdale Mercury.
“Just what it purports to be, neither more nor less. It supplies everything, as far as we know, that a traveller unacquainted with the county can wish for; and in its minutest particulars, exhibits evidences of care which will give it an additional value."-Sunday Times.
