Notes:
Manuscript. The publication was evidently conceived as a series in six parts, or which only the first comprising Tours and its vicinity ever appeared. The other parts, present here in manuscript form with the intended illustrations in pencil or watercolor, were to have appeared as follows: 2. Orleans 3. Blois. 4. Amboise. 5. Saumur. 6. Angers.
The unsigned drawings and watercolors are presumably by Masquerier, who owned the present volume and gives every indication of having written the manuscript portions and executed the illustrations.
