An interesting title page showing a globe and a map. Below with text: "This Superbly Elegant Frontispiece Represents Britannia (attended by Prudence, Justice, Temperance, & Fortitude) holding out an Olive Branch to the four Quarters of the World, who are pressing forward to receive it, while the God of the Seas pours out of a Cornucopia the Riches of the Globe at her Feet.

The Angel of Truth is represented as dictating to the Genius of our Work, an Account of the various subjects to be described in This New British Traveller; a Youth and a Lover of the fine Arts are hearkening with Attention to the Discourse.

At a distance on a Hill is the Temple of British Worthies, in the background is a view of the Cornish Mount, Naval Force, Agriculture, Sculpture, &c. The Arms of England, Scotland, & Ireland, with the Ruins of Stonehenge, ..."
