FRANCE AND ITALY.
By W. H A ZLITT,
l' the world's volume
PRINTED FOR HUNT AND CLARKE,
The following Notes of a Journey through France and Italy are reprinted from the columns of the Morning CHRONICLE. The favourable reception they met with there suggested the idea of the present work. My object has been to describe what I saw or remarked myself; or to give the reader some notion of what he might expect to find in travelling the same road. There is little of history or antiquities or statistics ; nor do I regret the want of them, as it may be abundantly supplied from other sources.
. The only thing I could have wished to expatiate upon more at large is the manners of the country: but to do justice to this, a greater length of time and a more intimate acquaintance with society and the language would be necessary. Perhaps, at some future opportunity, this defect may be remedied.
