Transcribed by Michael Steer

Charles Knight (1791-1873), prolific author and publisher is perhaps best remembered for his association with Charles Dickens, whom he praised publicly as 'a writer whose original and brilliant genius is always under the direction of kindly feeling towards his fellow-creatures'. The two became close friends in the early 1850s, and Knight participated enthusiastically in Dickens's amateur theatricals, as well as contributing 19 articles to Household Words. Much of the information in Dickens's A Child's History of England (1851-53) was derived from Charles Knight's Pictorial History Of England. Knight's several popular 'excursion books are packed with information and a rich source of pleasure for the inquisitive Victorian holiday-maker'. This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the New York Public Library that can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. Those on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
