A Family Tour

In the preface to the book A Family Tour through the British Empire Priscilla writes ‘The favourable reception of the Juvenile Travellers has given encouragement to the present undertaking, with a design to convey a general idea to the minds of children, of the variety of surface, produce, manufactures, and principal places of the British Empire ; connected with its geography, and the addition of historical and biographical anecdotes ; a species of knowledge both useful and ornamental, but so diffused in numerous publications, that a sketch, having the air of a real tour, and containing the prominent features of the subject, was thought likely to prove a valuable addition to the juvenile library.’
