About The Visitor's Handbook for Cheltenham


This guide to Cheltenham provides the reader with information on the town's spas, pump rooms, churches and places of fashion and amusement. As stated in the 'advertisement', the author intends to avoid 'those grandiloquent descriptions of scenery and objects which generally distinguish the adulatory style of provincial Guides, aiming rather to be correct than elegant.'
