"Such a succession of beautiful plates is scarcely to be found elsewhere, and they are unsurpassed both in delicacy of drawing and tinting. The voyage, starting from the Land's End and continuing by the north coast of Cornwall, was made partly by sea and partly by land, the original intention to travel principally by sea not being found practicable on account of the dangerous nature of the coast. The Introduction states that...it is impossible to make any individual selections from such a treasure-house of beauty" (Aquatint Engraving pp.279-280).
The work was originally issued in parts costing 10s.6d. each, or £60 when completed.
