THE favorable reception accorded by the public to previous issues of this little work, justly sanctions the publication of another edition. In the preparation of this, some of the matter has been re-written, much of the remainder amended while many faots of interest have been inserted both in the text and the notes.

The Appendix also has been enlarged, more particularly by the introduction of an abstract account of the stained glass windows in the Cathedral New Assize Courts, New Masonic Hall, C., which it is hoped, will be found useful and enter- taining to our readers. For these improvements, the Editor acknowledges himself indebted, as before to the larger works of others who have written upon the same subject and in a ecarcely less degree CO the willing assistance rendered by many clerical and professional gentlemen, resident within the City of Durham.

The Editor trusts that the united efforts of these gentlemen, may continue to receive the siamp of popular approbation, and that this work, small and snpretending though it be, may live to rank as a permanent and standard GUIDE BOOK for all visitors to this venerable City.
