EXTRACT FROM FOREWORD:
"It has no doubt been observed by all careful readers of the works of Charles Dickens how very frequently in his earliest and his latest books he introduces the City of Rochester as the scene of portions of his stories.
I now propose to bring together such references to this locality as are to be found in the entire works of Dickens, and where possible, to let the great master himself do the descriptive part in his own language.
In adding some explanatory notes of my own, I may say that, having passed perhaps the most impressionable part of my childhood at a school in Rochester, and having been familiar with the neighbourhood all through my life, I am able to testify to the wonderful accuracy and realism of the many sketches of life and scene in that part of kent, which are to be found in some of the works of Charles Dickens."
