CRITICAL NOTICES

OF THE

CONTINENTAL TRAVELLER,

AND

INVALID'S HANDBOOK.

[ocr errors]

"A COMPANION on whose fidelity and usefulness, travellers may with security depend. Its medical precepts appear to us to be the results of much scientific observation.”—Gentleman's Magazine.

“ Distinguished by the practical good sense that belongs to Mr. Lee's publications, as well as by that fulness and certainty of knowledge which result from long experience."- Spectator.

“A very superior book, full of information, elegantly communicated”—Monthly Magazine.

“ Mr. Lee is a high and well-known authority on the subjects indicated of a medical character, and this volume will be found to be a valuable manual in the respect mentioned.”—Monthly Review.

“The production of a scholar and a gentleman; of one who knows how to be interesting while he is scientific, and to convey most valuable and sterling information, with all the graces that are expected to adorn elegant literature.”—Metropolitan.

“Notwithstanding the author's modest proviso, the spirited manner in which a great deal of information is compressed into small space gives a novelty, and almost an originality, to his local descriptions."United Service Gazette.

“ The work will be found a trustworthy indication to the continental visiter ; the appended observations on climate and travelling are of a sensible character.”—British and Foreign Medical Review.

The descriptions of the various places are sketchy and accurate. We consider the book to have all the merits of an excellent travelling companion, and a guide to the invalid.”Medical Gazette.

“ The author is well known for his excellent works on a variety of medical subjects. This work is written in a pleasant familiar style, and is replete with information, but will be found peculiarly useful to the invalid."— Observer.

“ The production of an intelligent and observant man, who seems to report with candour, facts circumstances and incidents. The solid dissertation on the influence of climate and travel, and on some prevalent causes of disease, are alone worth the price of the work."-Christian Witness.

“ This work will prove useful to valetudinarians. From his experience and observation the author is well qualified for the task he has undertaken. His book is not one of those “guides which is as uninteresting as useless, but it gives information in a manner calculated to please as well as to instruct. The remarks on the influence of climate and advantages of travelling are good.”—Medical Times.

“ Mr. Lee is well known as a successful writer on professional subjects. The tour comprises every thing worth seeing or recommending; and, as the accuracy and soundness of the author's details can be depended upon, the book cannot but be one of very general utility.”--New Monthly Magazine.

“We can cordially recommend the attentive examination of this work, the production, as it evidently is, of a refined mind improved by study, and conveying the soundest reflections in the liveliest manner.”—Post Magazine.

“ This work will prove of much value to invalidu.”— Weekly Chronicle.

“ This volume well sustains the author's previous reputation as a scholar and a gentleman."--Bell's Weekly Messenger.

“ It unites instruction to the traveller with advice to the invalid.”—Economist.

“ The work is alike entertaining and instructive, and the descriptions of the various places are animated and accurate.” - Dispatch.

This is a useful, and seems to us likely to be a popular, work. Mr. Lee, too, has had unusual advantages in writing this book, having resided many seasons on the Continent, and thus describing from his own knowledge and observation. His medical remarks as to residence are of particular value."--Douglas Jerrold's Paper.

“ It is admirably adapted 'for home-reading as a book of travels,' and the medical ability of its author renders it an exceedingly useful work—as a hand-book to foreign parts, we would also recommend it for its conciseness and simplicity." Critic.

“ The author's style is interesting, altogether free from mere guide-book flippancy, while his general remarks are distinguished by sound judgment and considerable penetration. As a volume replete with interesting information, and of indispensable utility to the valetudinarian, we cordially recommend it.”-- Wesleyan Magazine.

“An excellent work, written with freedom and remarkable accuracy of observation.”—Liverpool Mail.

“ To those who may be interested in the subject of climate, Mr. Lee may prove a valuable counsellor.”—Somerset Herald.

“ This, like most of the author's works, is marked by the predominance of clear perception and cool reflection, and an abundance of sound useful information. In a medical sense it is even more valuable than as a condensed account of continental travel.”—Coventry Herald.

“The valetudinarian traveller's guide, and a very pleasant, intelligent, and amusing companion.”—Kentish Gazeite.

“We strongly recommend a careful perusal of the book to every invalid about to travel. The general reader will also find in its pages much to amuse and instruct.”—Plymouth Herald.

“ An admirable companion to the invalid in search of health, as well as a source of amusement to the stay-at-home reader.”Bath Herald.

“Mr. Lee writes in a very perspicuous style, expresses his opinions in a candid straightforward manner, and gives good sound advice with regard to the improvement or restoration of health. The valetudinarian is particularly indebted to our author not only for the present but also for former works.”Maidstone Journal.

“ Interesting to the general reader, and of peculiar value to the valetudinarian.”Gateshead Observer.

“A pleasing guide, an interesting companion, and a medical friend. For home reading it is also valuable, the sketches of the different places being written so as to point out all that desirable to the traveller, without dwelling too much on minutiæ.”—Liverpool Mercury.

“ The sketches are highly graphic, and not so laboured as to produce that tedium which sometimes arises from a minuteness of description.”—Harrogate Advertiser.

“ The general reader will find this an amusing book-the invalid a useful book.”Edinburgh Advertiser.

“Of the subjects discussed in the more strictly professional part of his book, Mr. Lee's great experience, extended observation, and philosophical cast of mind, enable him to speak with authority, and may well give weight his conclusions both with the medical profession and the public at large.”Midland Counties Herald.

“ There is an air of candour and discrimination about the author's professional views, which commend them to the respectful attention of general readers.”Leeds Times.

“Mr. Lee's observations upon the different kinds of climate, and their sanatory influences, are distinguished by practical good sense, and the fulness of knowledge which only experience justifies.”—Cheltenham Chronicle.

“Mr. Lee is an intelligent traveller and candid observer, whose works we have frequently had occasion to notice with approbation, and the present book comprises many a hint well calculated to aid the invalid, and to enlighten travellers generally.”Brighton Gazette.

“ This volume presents a happy combination of the utile dulce. The remedial advantages of travelling are carefully pointed out, while we are conducted along a most agreeable continental tour. Altogether, this volume is both instructive and interesting.”Oxford Herald.

“We may anticipate for this highly interesting volume a steady and extensive demand. As much information is afforded as is frequently diffused through twice the extent of letterpress. The Appendix is filled with a great deal of highlyvaluable and interesting information.”--Nottingham Mercury.
