NOTICE TO INNKEEPERS AND OTHERS.
THE Editor of BRADSHAW'S HAND-BOOKS wishes to intimate that
no person or persons are authorised to procure or receive money from Hotel Keepers, Artists, or Tradespeople abroad, under pretence of procuring the insertion of favourable notices of their establishments, &c., in the Hand-Books. Such recommendations in these books are not to be purchased; they are the result of personal experience, or well-founded and disinterested information, Nor will self-laudatory letters from Innkeepers in praise of their own houses be received.
The present revised and improved HAND-BOOK TO FRANCE is adapted to the requirements of the day, and to the great alterations produced by the extension of the railway system. In writing it we have endeavoared to steer midway between tedious descriptions and a meagre list of names; in order to recommend it to the tastes of the majority of travellers, whose object is to see as much as possible with the least expenditure of time and money.
The plan pursued is as follows: Paris, is the great centre from which all the Routes spread over the country; which is now parcelled out into six Sections, corresponding to the six great Railway Companies. We first follow the trunk lines of each, and then their branches, in succession, as far as they go ; describing everything worth notice upon them or in their vicinity, from the nearest station. Next, the roads which traverse a district remote from the new lines of communication, are described from some convenient starting point; and thus every locality of the slightest interest, however distant from a railway, is brought into connection with it and made accessible to the Traveller.
Besides the authorities referred to in the text, we have been under great obligations for many useful details in the compilation and revision of this HandBook, to A. IIugo's interesting work, entitled France Pittoresque, and to Hachette's series of French Itinéraires, edited by A. Joanne, and others.
It is scarcely necessary to add that the production of a good Guide is a work of † ime, and the result of much patient thought, and gradual digestion of matter.
Those, therefore, into whose hands this little book may fall, are earnestly invited to . lend their assistance towards perfecting it, by transmitting such corrections or
idditional information as may be derived from personal experience or good aut}iority, ,!!..our London or Manchester Office. Notices of alterations in conveyances, hotels. sind other heads, will be received with many thanks.
