This is an early work by the prolific Barbara Hofland, who supported herself and her family by her novels and other writings. In the preface the author describes this piece as one "...of a numerous progeny of watering place bagatelles" of which the "admirable production of Mr. Anstey's the'New Bath Guide,'...may justly be considered the parent."
