PREFACE.

This volume is intended to convey, in the smallest possible space, a description of the most remarkable objects of the French capital.

An alphabetical arrangement has been considered as the most practical and the least troublesome to use. It is preceded by lists of the principal buildings, institutions, and other objects, according to their topographical position, spread over a certain number of days. Notices are given of those accessible on each day of the week; so that, by referring to them, the visitor can form his own plans, according to his occupation and tastes, and to the time he can devote to their examination.

The review of the videnda of Paris is preceded by the various Routes by which it may be reached from England, describing the most important localities on

the way:

The Plan of the City* is engraved so carefully that the stranger will find on it the names of all the most important buildings and institutions clearly inserted, so that, by attending to the note at p. 53, the tourist will find no difficulty in discovering their place, and in piloting himself, without any other aid, through the intricacies of the GREAT CITY of Continental Europe.

The notices of the different monuments and public establishments have been brought down, from personal examination, to the present time; and all the new streets, with the altered names of the older ones, are inserted on the map.

* This Plan is also published on a larger scale, mounted on canvas, and sold separately in a case.
