"In this revision... the publishers have had in view the ever-increasing requirements of motorists and travellers for recent and complete information in regard to the roads and routes throughout the country, and the need of placing before the public particulars of newer and lesser known thoroughfares.
Through tours around the whole of the Island and along the main central districts, together with a complete net-work of cross-country connecting routes, have been provided.
By the help of these, together with a new Table of Distances, tourists will be enabled to map out and plan their tours having before them a concise description of the roads they will have to travel and the distances they must cover on their journey.
For the guidance of motorists to whom the Camping Tour particularly appeals, a list of camping sites has been included." - preface
