Notes :




My apology for introducing copies of my own sketches, instead of photographs from nature is, simply, that I was unable in any other way to get the exact views required for the purposes of my book. Those who would like to possess photographs of the many and varied beauties of the scenery in Bournemouth and its surroundings will find in the contents a list of those which are in my opinion the most charming and illustrative. They can all be obtained at the Victoria Library, Bournemouth, by quoting the titles I have given.—Page vi of preface.
