Many years have elapsed since the production of a former Work, under the title of Observations on the T lzeory and Practice of Landscape Gardening during which, the Author's attention has been called to such variety of subjects, such interesting Scenery, and such novelty of expedients, that a second volume under the former title might have been expected (the whole of two editions of that Work are entirely sold, and the volume is become very scarce). The contents of the present Volume, which appears under a new title, will be found neither to be a continuation nor a contradiction of the former Observations; but, from the subject's being elucidated by new and more beautiful examples, the Author's former principles in the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening will be confirmed.
The following Fragments having been selected from more than four hun dred different Reports in ms. An occasional repetition of the same remark will unavoidably, though not frequently, occur; and for this it is hoped, that the variety and beauty of the subjects may compensate, by giving new and more striking examples and elucidations.
