interesting subjects of this Volume will be found,_ The Birth-place or
John Bunyan; the Burial-place of John Hampden; the Residence of Hannah
More; the Tomb of Sir Thomas Gresham; the Tomb of Thomas Gray; the
Birth-place of Thomas Chatterton; the Birth-place of Richard Wilson; the
House of Andrew Marvel; the Tomb of John Stow; the Heart of Sir Nicholas

Dwelling of James Barry; the Residence of Dr. Isaac Watts; the Prison of
Lady Mary Grey; the Town of John Kyrle (the Man of Ross); the Tomb of
William Hogarth; the Studio of Thomas Gainsborough, R.A.

NOTICES OF THE PRESS "Descriptions of such Shrines come home with deep
interest to all hearts--all English hearts--particularly when they are
done with the earnestness which distinguishes Mrs. Hall's writings. That
lady's earnestness and enthusiasm are of the right sort--felt for
freedom of thought and action, for taste, and for genius winging its
flight in a noble direction. They are displayed, oftentimes most
naturally, throughout the attractive pages of this volume."--_Observer._

"Mrs. Hall's talents are too well known to require our commendation of
her 'Pilgrimages,' which are every way worthy of the beautiful woodcuts
that illustrate almost every page, and this is very high praise
indeed."--_Standard._

"The illustrations are very effective; and the whole work externally and
internally, is worthy of the patronage of all who love to be instructed
as well as amazed."_--Church and State Gazette._

"The book is a pleasant one; a collection of a great deal of curious
information about a number of curious places and persons, cleverly and
readily put together, and combined into an elegant volume."--_Guardian_.
