Preparing for publication, Traditions of the County of York; First Series. To be published on the same plan and uniform with the “ Traditions of Lancashire." By J. Roby, M.R.S.L. It is the Author's aim, in these Traditions, to illustrate obscure portions of English history, manners and customs now obsolete, and to portray the very actors and the scenes in which they lived—the costume and character of the age in which they appeared. . He would fain hope they will not be found an unimportant addition to our existing stock of knowledge, as a collection of legends having truth for their basis, however disfigured in their transmission through various modifications of error, the natural obscurity arising from distance, and the distorted media through which they must necessarily be viewed. Every tale will be embellished by an engraving or a wood-cut, illustrating the localities it involves, from drawings by the best painters, and executed in the highest style of the art. The publishers have only to state, that the very great expense which must unavoidably be incurred, renders it necessary that a certain number of subscribers' names should be procured before commencing the work; they solicit aid therefore from all who may have the opportunity and wish to patronize the undertaking, pledging themselves that no time shall be lost in completing the publication.
