Excerpt from Description of That Admirable Structure, the Cathedral Church of Salisbury: With the Chapels, Monuments, Grave-Stones, and Their Inscriptions, to Which Is Prefixed an Account of Old Sarum

We are well aware of the high importance of a Preface to a Book. As custom prevails, it is indispensible: it becomes a panegyric, in the hands of an artful author, on his own abilities erudition and studies: and the purpose of it is to recommend the work, to which it is prefixed, to reputation, praise, and success. Convinced as we are, how greatly this practice derogates from the dignity of letters, and that it is unworthy of ingenuous and liberal minds, we shall adopt as little of it as possible. The public judgment is the scale by which every work ought to be measured, and the author ought to leave it to its fate. If it merits approbation, it will receive it, and the author might have suppressed his own eulogy: if its pretensions to regard are ill-founded, he will declaim in vain. As every reader, however, has a right to know what he ought to expect in a book, which is to cost him both money and time, we now proceed to inform him.

The subject of the following sheets, curious in itself, and rendered valuable by its connection with the internal and domestic history of this kingdom, offers a source of general entertainment to a numerous body of readers, but more particularly to the lovers of antiquities, who will not be less pleased with it because it is topical. This work recites a particular account of the city of Old Sarum, and the Cathedral Church of Salisbury.
