From the cover: “the author of Robinson Crusoe toured the Eastern Counties 230 years ago. His ‘particular and diverting account of whatever is curious and worth observation’ originally appeared in 1724. It is now republished, with many reproductions of contemporary prints.
It is, in its way, an eighteenth century classic. It gives a vivid and intensely interesting account of the life of the time in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. It has been quoted times without number and has long been out of print.”
