ADVERTISEMENT.

In this volume, the author aims to render more familiar to the

general reader, places which—in association with the great men and

women of British history—cannot fail to be generally interesting.

Her own visits to these English Shrines have been sources of deep

and lasting enjoyment, and not without valuable instruction. If she

succeed in sharing these adřantages with others, she will have received

her reward.

To the pen and the pencil of the author's excellent coadjutor,

Mr. F. W. FAIRHOLT, the reader will be largely indebted for much

useful information concerning the subjects treated of in these pages.

Several of the “Pilgrimages” have been published in the ARTJOURNAL; in that work they attracted attention; and the author has

yielded to the wish of the publisher in collecting them into a Volume,

which she hopes may be found not unworthy of public favour.
