Excerpt from Delineations, Graphical and Descriptive, of Fountains' Abbey, in the West Riding of the County of York The vestiges of fountains' abbey are universally allowed to be the most perfect and picturesque that now exist in the kingdom; and every attention which art can bestow is exerted to enhance the natural beauties of the place; so that, while the fabric itself exhibits the mouldering ruins of a once magnificent pile, erected in a far distant age, the grounds are decorated and preserved in all the elegance of modern refine ment. These delightful associations of nature and of art have long been duly appreciated; and the continual resort of nobility and fashion to these charming scenes gives ample testimony to the estimation in which they are held. Not withstanding these superior claims, it may be asserted correctly that no adequate representation of this splendid ruin, nor any particular description has hitherto been attempted.
