Tus present work is offered to the public as one of a series of cheap and portable Hand Books, which are in preparation for the use of travellers at home and abroad, adapted to the requirements of the day, and to the great alterations produced by the extension of the railway system. In writing it, the Editor has endeavoured to steer midway between tedious descriptions and a meagre list of names. But while he has chosen such a plain business-like style and selection of matter as may 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, he believes that the resident in France will here find as much information collected as will serve for the full examination of any particular locality.
Besides the authorities referred to in the text, the Editor has been under great obligations for many details in the compilation of this Guide to an excellent and interesting work, entitled France Pittoresque, by A. Hugo, the brother of Victor Hugo, It is a complete summary of France, by departments, with engravings, &c.; and the traveller could hardly bring back with him a more instructive and useful remembrance of his visit to that country. Another general authority has been F. Didot's Guide Pittoresque du Voyageur en France.
It is scarcely necessary to add that the production of a good guide is a work of time, 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 in perfecting it, by transmitting such corrections or additional information as may be derived from personal experience or good authority. Notices of alterations in conveyances, hotels, and other useful heads, will be received with thanks.
