are acquainted with the scenes which they represent.
A new, and it is hoped an improved plan, will be followed in the subsequent publication of this work; and as it is thought more convenient that the account of Cornwall (intended to have been given in this volume) should form a separate publication, the new series will commence with an excursion in that county, for which materials are now collecting. The beautiful river Plym, from its estuary at Saltram to its source on Dartmoor, on account of the uncommon variety of its views and its
proximity to Plymouth, will, probably, follow next, as the drawings are in a considerable state of forwardness, particularly the romantic bridge known by the name of Old Plym Bridge, and the charming scenery about Cann Quancy, the Vale of Bickley, and the Rocks of Dewerston
The chief inducement to the alteration
proposed in the publication of the second part of this work is the obvious advantage of a more commodious form, which, while adapted for the pocket, would be of a size
ufficient to admit of the greatest correctness in the Views. From this consideration (the publication in numbers being discontinued) the continuation of the work will be printed in a neat small octavo volume. The etchings will be very highly finished, and the subjects selected from the alternate scenery of both counties: to commence with an excursion in Cornwall, as before mentioned.
To accommodate those subscribers who may wish for uniformity, a sufficient number of copies will be printed for their use upon a large paper, to correspond with the present volume.
