Bristol and its Environs, Historical and Descriptive


    IT was some time ago announced that a Guide to Bristol was being prepared for visitors to the British Association Meeting. This is now published, and appears as an 8vo volume of 475 pages bound in cloth. In many respects the local committee have made great exertions to make the visit in every way a pleasant one, and this has been pretty well known, but so voluminous a guide as this is certainly a surprise. It is well got up, and is illustrated both with views of the buildings in the town and with diagrams illustrative of the geology of the district. Many pens have been employed in its preparation. “The contributions,” the Introduction states, “are honorary—the several authors have written with pure love of their subject, and for the sake of doing homage to the occasion that has called forth the volume.”

    Bristol and its Environs, Historical and Descriptive.

    Published under the sanction of the Local Executive Committee of the British Association. (London: Houlston and Sons. Bristol: Wright and Co., 1875.)
