Catalogue Note

The prospectus, dated 1832, describes the work as "just completed", and indicates that the work was published in 5 parts and that copies with "india proofs" such as this one, were the most expensive at 10 guineas.

Loosely inserted is a copy of "English Landscape." Revised list of states, by Osbert H. Barnard, which indicates that most of the plates in this collection are first states.
