PART I.

ENGRAVINGS ON WOOD.

Executed by John JACKSON, Esq. and his brother,

MASON JACKSON, Esq.

Ye Finny Tribes, by Nature gay,
That sport beneath the noontide ray,
Live ye! as erst (in Memory's eye)
When love was young, and hope was high :
Renew, in thought, each sylvan scene,
On which my Mary smiled serene, -
Whom but to think I once possest
Makes yet the sunshine of my breast.

1. View from Lea Bridge, * drawn by T. Creswick,

A. R. A., . . . . . in the Title.

* The views on the River Dove accompanying Part II. were most kindly placed at my disposal by my friend John L. ANDERDON, Esq. Being the result of several journeys made in the very spirit of Pilgrimage to those romantic spots, they form a very interesting illustration. I have also induced T. CRESWICK, Esq. to make repeated visits to the LEA, in order that this edition may boast a full display of the actual scenery of both parts of this tranquillizing book.
