NOTICE TO THE SECOND EDITION.
This Edition of the Handbook has been subjected to a most careful and thorough revision ; many new routes are added, and several have been re-written. The Editor trusts that the imperfections and errors of this book will be found to have been considerably diminished. His own personal rectification of mistakes and omissions has been most materially aided by the communications of numerous and obliging correspondents, many of them personally unknown to him, to whom he takes this opportunity of returning his acknowledgments. He begs, at the same time, to repeat his request, that travellers who may in the use of the Handbook detect any faults or omissions which they can correct from personal knowledge, will have the kindness to communicate to him a notice of the same, through his publisher. The mere personal exertions of the Editor must fall short of attaining perfect accuracy for such a work as a Guide-book, unless aided by such co-operation.
