ILLUSTRATED

With a correct MAP of the ROAD on a Scale of One Inch

[ by Thomas fisher

O famous Kent,--
What county hath this Ille, that can compare with thee!
That hath within thyself as much as thou canst with ;
Thy rabbits, venison, fruits, thy forts of fowl and fish;
As what with strength comports, thy hay, thy corn, thy wood,
Nor any thing doth want, that any where is good.

THE

HE favourable reception given to the very

concise description of the towns and villages
on the Kentish road, published in 1772 with the
History and Antiquities of ROCHESTER, has in-
duced the editors to revise and very considerably
enlarge it, by collecting the best information of
whatever is thought worthy a Traveller's attention
in this much frequented Tour; nor have they
[pared for either pains or expence to render it
what they hope it will prove, a pleasing and useful
Companion.
