Excerpt from Tombleson's Views of the Rhine
Our Work first presents a description of Cologne, one of the largest cities on the Banks of the Rhine; where that continued series of enchanting landscape and ro mantic scenery commences, which, in the progress up the river, constantly bursts on the enraptured sight. By our numerous engraved delineations, we shall endeavour to familiarise with the eye when present, and with the re collection when removed, all the beauties and classic interest with which this far-famed river abounds - scenery, which, in uniting the romantic and picturesque with the sublime and beautiful, creates a degree of enthusiasm in the mind and feelings of the observer, either as Artist or Tourist; raising and exalting the imagination, from the contemplation of these sublimities of Nature, even to Nature's God.
