A very interesting description and history of a piece of most beautiful sylvan scenery in Berkshire, celebrated for its old and most romantic-looking Beeches, lately acquired by the Corporation of London for the permanent enjoyment of the public. The suggestion - to acquire and preserve for the above purpose was originally suggested by the author, who has in the little volume done his best, by pleasant writing, graphic descriptions, and engravings, to make the public acquainted with the enchanting place - Burnham Beeches.
