436.  Tour through several of the Midland and Western Departments of France, in the Summer of 1802.  By the Rev. H. Hughes.  London, 1802. 8vo.

437.  Bugge’s Travels in France. 1798-99. 12mo.—­This work was written originally in Danish, and was afterwards translated into French.  The author, a celebrated astronomer and professor of mathematics at Copenhagen, was sent to Paris to attend a committee on weights and measures.  His travels are particularly interesting from the account they give of the different scientific and literary establishments in France.

438.  Anglo-Norman Antiquities considered, in a Tour through Normandy.  By A.C.  Ducarel.  Fol. 1767.—­A valuable work on this particular subject.

439.  Narrative of a Three Years’ Residence in France, principally in the Southern Departments. 1802-5.  By Anne Plumptree. 3 vols. 8vo.—­Some useful information on the productions, scenery, and manners of this part of France, may be collected from these volumes.

440.  Travels through the South of France, 1807-8.  By Lieut.-Col.  Pinckney. 4to.—­These travels were performed in a part of France not often visited.  They give light and amusing sketches of the manners, customs, and state of society there; but there is a manifest tendency to exaggeration in them.

441.  Account of a Tour in Normandy.  By Dawson Turner. 1821. 2 vols. 8vo.—­Architectural antiquities form the chief topic; historical notices and manners are also given:  all indicating a well-informed and intelligent mind.

442.  Letters written during a Tour through Normandy, Brittany, and other Parts of France, in 1818.  By Mrs. C. Stothard. 4to. 1821.—­Much information on the manners, habits, &c. of the inhabitants of Brittany, a part of France not much visited by travellers; besides local and historical descriptions.

443.  Itinerary of Provence and the Rhine. 1819.  By J. Hughes. 8vo.—­A useful book, and some parts of it very interesting.

444.  Voyage Litteraire de la France.  Par Deux Benedictins. (D.D.  Martine et Durand.) Paris, 1730. 2 vols. 4to.—­This work relates to monuments and inscriptions, of which it gives an accurate account.

445.  Voyage Geographique et Pittoresque des Departements de la France.  Paris, 1794-97, 11 vols. fol.

446.  Voyage dans les Departements de la France.  Par La Vallee, pour le Texte; Brun pere, pour la Partie Geographique; Brun fils, pour celle de Dessein.  Paris, 1790—­1800. 100 cahiers, 8vo.

447.  Voyage en France, enrichi de belles Gravures.  Paris, 1798. 4 vols. 18mo.—­These works, in conjunction with the following, though not strictly within our plan, as being not the result of the observations of the authors themselves, are noticed here, because they give the most full and satisfactory information respecting France, geographical, descriptive, statistical, &c.  Statistique Generale et Particuliere de la France.  Par une Societe des Gens de Lettres.  Paris, 1805. 7 vols. 8vo.
