T requires some hardihood to write afresh the story of the Tower of London, whilst so many able and complete accounts are in existence. But perhaps

not often before has the tale been told by one who lives within these ancient walls. The literary palate also sometimes requires a change, and those who may pass by a book of two generations back, are perhaps tempted to take up a new presentment of the same subject; though it be merely a case of old wine in new bottles. In the hope of thus again interesting the English speaking races in the great past, of which the Tower of London is the symbol and monument, this book is with much diffidence written.

GEORGE YOUNGHUSBAND. St. Thomas' Tower,

Tower OF LONDON,
