minds and features of human beings become similar to each other—and in this respect only, can novelty, or rather variety of sentiment be expected. The construction of this volume will shew that the author estimated its value at a very low rate, and consequently imposed but a very moderate tax on the public. He did not indeed he could not, travel as an Antiquarian, Painter, Architect, Botanist, Geologist, or Politician. He roamed from place to place, as a philosophic observer. It is well known that many people migrate annually to Italy, in search of health and there find a grave;-while a still larger class go thither in quest of pleasure or improvement, and bring back the seeds of disease. The observations of a medical traveller, not inexperienced in the investigation of climatorial influence on the human constitution, mental and corporeal, may prove useful to those who wander or sojourn on the classic soil of Italy, for any of the above purposes ;-while the reflections which he has hazarded on the moral effects of foreign residence, or rather expatriation, may possibly interest a still wider circle of readers.

The author is well aware of the many imperfections and verbal errors of this little volume, which, the nature of his avocations, after the bustle of travelling, gave him little time to rectify. But he throws himself on the mercy

of the critic and of the reader, with a just confidence that they will make allowance for the circumstances under which the work was composed.
