Overview
Excerpt from Narrative of an Excursion to the Mountains of Piemont, in the Year 1823: And Researches Among the Vaudois, or Waldenses, Protestant Inhabitants of the Cottian Alps

I am not aware of any publication that has antici pated this attempt to call the attention of readers to the scenes described in the following pages, nor do I know of any volume in which the present condition of the Vaudois, and their former interesting history is brought under review, in the form which I have here adopted. The list of books, inserted in the Appen dix, No. I. Contains the principal authorities, which have been consulted for the purpose of giving a cor rect sketch of the ancient Waldensian churches: these books are, for the most part, very rare, and if they Were not so, the distance of time at which they were printed, and the periods of history that they comprise, would shew, that the writer of a narrative, who brings the relation down to the last year, is taking up ground that has not yet been occupied, unless indeed by an occasional pamphlet.
