The object of this volume is to direct attention to the noble landscapes that lie along the routes by which the White Mountains are now approached by tourists, — many of which are still unknown to travellers; to help per sons appreciate landscape more adequately; and to asso ciate with the principal scenes poetic passages which illus trate, either the permanent character of the views, or some peculiar aspects in which the author of the book has seen them. Where so many landscapes are described in detail, there cannot fail to be sameness and repetition. It would have been more to the author's mind to arrange the vol ume by subjects instead of by districts, and to treat the scenery under the heads of rivers, passes, ridges, peaks, 850. But it was found that such a distribution and treat ment, although it might have given the book more artis tic unity, would have made it less valuable on the whole, than to construct it as a guide to particular landscapes, and a stimulant to the enjoyment of them.
