NOTES OF A TRAVELLER
On the Social and Political State of France, Prussia, Switzerland, Italy, and other parts of Europe, during the present Century. By Samuel Laing, Esq. 2d Edit. (1842), 8vo. 16s. cloth. "The quantity of matter contained in a single volume would outweigh a dozen or twenty common travel-books, and exceeds that of any single work which has for years emanated from the press. Nor is it wanting in literary excellence. The subjects are all important in themselves, and well presented with a view to attract the reader who would take the slightest interest in such kind of questions. Every thing is exhausted, according to Mr. Laing's mode of exhaustation, yet nothing is overdone. His social and political investigations are interesting from their intrinsic importance, and attractive from their racy, vigorous mode of treatment; his political economy and his statistics have none of the dryness frequently attendant upon such subjects, for they are all well selected and applied; the reader sees the object they are advanced to prove, and is not wearied by details which convey no idea of a whole or a purpose. The composition throughout is clear, vigorous, and full of life; the style never stagnates; and in some of the more general descriptions, it displays a rough picture-like power, which presents by a few touches a general view of the country's physical aspect."-Spectator.

are whether relate to
"The statistics, both tabular and explanatory the country, the extent of cultivation, general the the nature of the soil and climate, and the leading particulars connected with agriculture, manufactures, commerce, navigation, the arts; or to matters more immediately connected with the state-as the finances, the army, the nany, justice, religion, and public education; whilst chapters devoted to government and the court give a view of the royal household, and the different official personages, as well as of the state of affairs previous to the arrival of the King, and an account of the constitution, such as it is.
