Excerpt from The Tourist in Spain: Granada

Spain - a land in itself bearing features expressive of all that can give interest to external nature, and pos sessing annals filled to over?owing with memorials of the great, the erring, and the ill-fated, furnishes themes on which the mind, looking either for lessons or for excitement, may brood long and well.

Old associations - the mingling surprise and admi ration with which be traced these annals, placed the Author in a position midway between history and tra dition - not far enough from reality to forget the truth, but still sufficiently excited to give credence to the whispers of his own Opinions and sympathies. He presents the reader with the result of the inquiries and thoughts which have had their origin in this state of mind. That fiction may be made the handmaid of truth, is proved by many a memorable example, and he trusts that his attempt to combine' the various consequences of a long succession of events in a narrative condensed by, rather than founded in fiction, will not fail in the principal object he has had in view. The Moors of Spain were a people marked by the strongest lineaments of human power and genius; their character, their glory, and their fall were alike distinguished by the mysterious energy which raised the founder of their nation into a conqueror; carried their tribes, first from desart to desart, and then from kingdom to kingdom, impelling them.
