"No apology, it is presumed, will be necessary for the appearance of the present volume, when the circumstances that led to its publication are briefly explained. Having consented to lecture on the subject, "Tyneside Celebrities," before several local societies, and feeling the deep interest which the story of the lives of famous Northern men naturally excited, it occurred to me that a more lasting memorial of them, than the ephemeral notice given in a few popular Lectures, would be appreciated by the public." - from the Preface.
