A Great part of these Papers were Printed eight years since, and some of them have been the light no less than twelve : But since that the Copies have been disposed of , and the Impressions fold , the Bookfeller hath thought fit to Reprint them together. In order to which, whilst he gave me the Opportunity to read them over, I could not omit the making of divers Additions, and adjoyning another Journey through the delightful Country of Lombardy : Calling to mind the Magnificence of some Roman Antiquities, and the Remarkable Actions of great Men in those Quarters. Whereby I might give a short Account of the strange Fate and various Revolutions of divers of their ancient Cities. As to the natural Curiosities and Observations in the first parts, it would be unnecessary to make any Introduction, they having now run through so many hands. I can only say, that what you had in scattered parts before, are here compacted together in one intire Volume , and hope for the fame kind Acceptance. The number of the Cuts are increased, and the Figures of divers Habits , Medals and Antiquities added: The Particular Description of which, in this Preface would prevent the satisfaction of considering them in their proper places; to which I shall refer you, wisbitig you the same pleasure in viewing them there, that I have had formerly in beholding them in their due Situations, and in the Contemplation and Description of them afterwards.
