Publisher Description

The facilities of travel which our day confers, have given a new and a different impulse to the human mind; the man is no longer deemed a wonder who has journeyed some hundred miles from home, -the miracle will soon be he who has not been everywhere. To persist, therefore, in dwelling on the same features, the same fortunes, and the same characters of mankind, while all around us is undergoing a great and a formidable revolution, appears to me as insane an effort as though we should try to preserve our equilibrium during the shock of an earthquake. The stage lost much of its fascination when, by the diffusion of literature, men could read at home what once they were obliged to go abroad to see.
