Contains advertisements.  From preface: "The following pages are reprinted from a series of descriptive sketches of a holiday tour in Antrim, which appeared in the Summer of 1890 in the columns of the Altrincham and Bowdon Guardian. It is hoped that the reproduction of the narrative in a slightly extended form will have the effect of attracting visitors to a country alike famous for its beautiful scenery and its historical and romantic associations."  Bookplate of former owner on first unnumbered advertising page.
