“The chief object of the Handbook for Northern France, which now appears for the fifth time and corresponds with the eight French edition, is to render the traveller as nearly as possible independent of the services and guides, commissionaires, and innkeepers, and to enable him to employ his time and his money to the best advantage.
Like the Editor’s other Handbooks, it is based on personal acquaintance with the country described, a great part of which has been repeatedly explored with the view of assuring accuracy and freshness of information.”
