ADDRESS.



The portion of England comprehended in the present volume — if not
eminent in subjects for peculiar notice, or replete with objects of absorbing
interest, possesses, still, a ' self-contained importance,' which, on a closer view,
will entitle it to a large share of consideration with the Topographer and
Tourist, and no small mark of attention from the Man of Business.

The North''Eastern Section is distinguished by a two-fold advantage over
other of the counties — being celebrated for its Manufactures, and for its
Fisheries. Norwich, indeed, has long occupied a prominent position, by the
elegance and variety of its Loom-productions — while the entire coast of Norfolk
teems with Fish — giving employment to Capital, and to the hardy seaman.
As a Farming County, too, it is no where excelled by fertility ; and its
agricultural operations are, perhaps, the most perfect in the World. Other
counties have also claims, recognized, in this respect, and the Landed Interest,
is of the first importance in most of them.

The Counties of Oxford and Cambridge, moreover, in addition to the
vital essential of Agriculture, are peculiarly distinguished— for, in their
Capitals, flourish, in unimpaired Classic Grandeur, after the lapse of centuries,
the magnificent ' Twin Seats of Learning' — the Colleges and Halls of which
have sent forth, to an admiring World, the most illustrious ornaments of the
Church, the Senate and the Bar.

The capabilities of the remaining districts of this Work — whether in
connexion with the cultivation of the soil, or Manufactures and Commerce, are
briefly, but faithfully noticed at the head of each County, and more particularly
detailed in each Town.

In furnishing these, and other particulars, the proprietor has been kindly
assisted by many talented residents, in th«^ difl^erent localities, for which he
here begs most respectfully to record his thanks — accompanied by his expression
of gratitude for the amount of patronage bestowed upon the Work.
