Description

This work is part of the "Book-Lovers Library" series which was edited by Henry B. Wheatley (1838 - 1917). Wheatley was a historian, librarian and scholar of repute and editor of the Book-Lovers Library series. Quoted from the author's "Introduction."

The full title of this work is as follows: Foreign Vistors to England, and What Then Have Thought of Us: Being Some Notes on Their Books and Their Opinions During the Last Three Centuries.

"It will be seen, from the ensuing pages, that there is material for very curious and interesting inquiry in the opinions and experiences of travellers in Great Britain. The frequent re-perusal of the memoirs of such travellers leads one to see that there is `a good deal of human nature'' about Englishmen; and that we have a special force of character, which brings us to extremes of both bad and good. We are, without doubt, difficult to understand on first acquaintance. The reason is this: that the average foreigner comes armed with prejudices. But when at last a Frenchman, or a Dutchman, or a German has succeeded in penetrating the character and understanding something of the habits and modes of thought of the ordinary English gentleman, he is first impelled to admire, and at length to love."

"The following essay is chiefly devoted to some visitors of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; although some references are made to diarists of our own and the last generation. When the reader learns that the bibliography of the subject extends to at least four hundred items, he will readily understand that an exhaustive treatment of the subject would exceed the
modest limits at our disposal."
