The text of “Boston Illustrated” has been revised thoroughly for this edition and brought to date, so that the little volume may be depended upon as a trustworthy guide to the city of to-day and a serviceable handbook both for the visitor and the resident. While all the features which have made it popular for so many years have been retained, the work has been freshened, new material added, and new illustrations introduced. In the preparation of this, as of previous editions, the aim has been to present much information in small compass; to make a ready reference book as well as a handy pocket guide.
