very interesting and popular Work; interspersed with

A GREAT VARIETY OF Blographical Memoirs and Anecdotes of some of the most distinguished Public Characters,

(Both Living and Dead,) Who have at different times resided in that City. “ The New History of the City of Gloucseter, just published, contains an immense fund of useful, varied, and interesting information, and displays in a strong degree that spirit of inquiry and research for which its indefatigable author, Mr. Couusel, is so celebrated. As it forms a most valuable addition to our local publications, we anticipate it will become a work of authority, and will assuredly recommend itself to all who take an interest in our ancient city."-Gloucester Journal, October 3, 1829.
