The following amongst other Notices of the New Editions of the Gossiping Guide to Wales have recently appeared.. AYFAIR. We commend this book to the M careful consideration of Mr. Murray. It seems to us to ba th<? model of what a guide-book should be. It gives all the information necessary For getting about, and it is, moreover, written in an attractive style that gives birth to a desire to get about. The bare details of names of places and of inns, with time tablefi of distances and catalogues of objects of interest which form the staple of the average guide-book are here filled time tablefi of distances and catalogues of objects of interest which form the staple of the average guide-book are here filled up with local colouring, and with a wealth of detail that make the book pleasant reading for others than tourists- Mr. Askew Roberts when travelling through Wales, every foot of which seems familiar to him, has picked up all that is to be found in the way of historical references, traditional or reliable. There are a good many. little things which we should like to quote from the two hundred and odd closely printed pages of the book." "VTOTES AND QUERIES.—"We strongly advise _Ll all visrtorsrthis year to North Wales to provide themselves with the Gossiping Guide to If'ales, by Askew Roberts (London Hodder and Stoughton). Descriptive notes and geological and botanical chapters form part of this useful volume, whose title would be more accurate did it comprise a description of South Wales. We trust Mr. Askew Roberts will take in hand this portion of the Principality." SOUTH WALES DAILY NEWS.—"The Gossiping Guide to Wales, by Mr. Askew Roberts, is one of the most perfect productions of its kind ever issued in connection with the Principality. It describes vividly the routes which travellers should follow, and these are illustrated by twelve maps and a Panorama of Snowdon. Ancient history, tradition, poetry, romance, and contemporary narrative are all copiously called into use, so that the ordinary reader has at every step a guide, philosopher, and friend:" FIELD.—" This Guide is sure to become a favourite with the multitude who now frequent the Principality, and, though by no means faultless, it deserves to succeed, as the author has availed himself of good local sources of information, which he is not too proud to acknowledge authorities, indeed, of every kind, from grave to gay, have been laid under contribu- tion ancient chronicles and legends are mingled with elegant extracts from the various London magazines and papers. The result, however, is not a hotch-potch, but a readable if rambling account, held together by the hand-book skeleton of dry localities." WESTERN MAIL.—"Readers in the Princi- pality, as well as tourists in your part of the country, will be glad to learn that a new edition of Mr. Askew Roberts's clever and amusing Gossiping Guide to Wales has just been pub- lished by Messrs. Hodder and Stoughton. Mr. Askew Roberts has shewn in this work how a guide book out;ht to be written, and does not furnish forth the baked meats' of older chron- iclers, in which all the errors of topography are repeated, but he has gone over all the ground anew, with the object of obtain- iaj. accuracy in every particut-tr.Loi, do?z Correspcndent's Letter. LIVERPOOL DAILY P.OST. Thia work is L not only a trusty guide but a most genial companion. The author. Mr. Askew Roberts, has sought to provide tourists in Norii Wales with something to talk about at every station they pt«ss when on the railways, and where they go off a description of the objects they must by no means mis* seeing.' His effort .lias been completely successful. Mr. Askew Roberts describes with an easy grace which places him at once upon a friendly, conversational footing with the feader. An admirable Panorama of Snowdon has been added, and forms in itself a very valuable acquisition to the resources of the tourist." WELSHMAN. No less than three new editions V V of Mr. Askew Roberts's admirable Guide have just been published, and they will, we doubt not, be warmly welcomed by the large section of the public who annually take holiday tours about this season. Mr. Askew Boberts has elaborately worked upon his abundant materials, until he has produced a volume as near perfection as possible, and certainly an improvement on even the really good edition noticed last year in these columns. One never wishes to quarrel with Mr. Askew Roberts he is good company in fair or foul weather; above all he is never pedantic, but always at his ease, frank, racy, cheerful, and natural." IRMINGHAM DAILY GAZETTE.—««THIS H B a thoroughly exhaustive guide to the Principality. There Is hardly anything which an excursionist would care to know that cannot be found in Mr. Askew Roberts's work. The author is familiar with the whole region described, has traversed some parts of it hundreds of times. Besides the ordinary kind of in- formation furnished by guide books, Mr. Askew Roberts has got together a: singularly interesting collection of legends and traditionary lore, which relieves the drier parts of the work." BIRMINGHAM DAILY POST. Many Welsh 113 tourists will be glad to see a new, revised, and enlarged edition of this most useful guide book. It is written in a lively, readable style is very full, and (so far as we have tested it) com- plete in its descriptions of scenery and places of interest; con- tains sketches of routes; gives a good account of the geological and botanical features of Wales; and is illustrated with twelve maps, upon some of which routes not marked in the ordnance survey are indicated. No trouble, indeed, has been twelve maps, upon some of which routes not marked in the ordnance survey are indicated. No trouble, indeed, has been spared to make the book a thoroughly good Welsh guide and it has the further advantage of not being too large for the knap- sack or the pocket." CYAIMRODOR. An enlarged edition of this JL Gossiping Guide to Wales has appeared. We have perused its multifarious contents with more than ordinary interest; and we can thoroughly recommend it to the tourist as an instructive and pleasant companion in rambles through North Wales. While professing to deal only with gossip, it gives valuable and reliable information. The writer touches scarcely a spot that he does not reanimate with life. Description, history, anecdote, and poetry, flow from his pen as though they would chase one another for the precedence. The old heroes renew their powers, and the bards re-sing their songs. In short, the Gossip' is ex- actly what we would recommend to one seeking recreation and rest from the worries of daily life amid romantic and quiet ooenery." THE STANDARD, Era, Figaro, Leisure Hour Fun, Hornet, Spectator, Queen, Tablet, and other London papers have also given favourable notices of the earlier editions of the Gossiping Guide to Wales; as also have the following pro- vincial papers :—Brccon County Times, Staffordshire Advertizer, Shrewsbury Chronicle, Liverpool Mercury, Manchester Courier, Wrexham Advertiser, Chester Chronicle, Eddowes's Journal, &c., &c., &c. Three editions are published, viz.: The "Popular" at Is. 6d.; the Half-Crown and the Crown. Oswestry, WOODALL aad VEXABLES. London, HORDES and STOUCHTON. I 1877.-GOSSIPING GUIDE TO WALES.-1877.
