A series of 108 steel engravings from drawings by William Westall. The engravings are mostly by Edward Finden. The series and volume were published by Charles Tilt, 86 Fleet Street, London and printed by Ibotson and Palmer, Savoy Street, Strand, London. The text was written by Thomas Moule. In his preface the publisher reports the total cost to be in excess of six thousand pounds, and that at the price offered three sets of copper plates would have been required to recoup the cost. The use of steel plates enabled the series to be offered at a price which a few years earlier would have been six or eight times as great for a similar production.

The plates are not numbered, but are printed two to a page with a following two sided numbered page of text, one side for each of the preceding prints. The first four plates have an individual publication line and date, thereafter there is a single publication line at the bottom of the page.

The dates on the publication lines of the plates are from (1st Otober) 1828 to 1830. The title page in the volume from which the images in this series were photographed is dated 1833.

The legend below the image for each plate takes a standard form throughout, with the title centre, the attribution to Westall left, the attribution to Finden or another engraver, right and the publication line bottom centre.

This particular volume has book plates inside the front cover and back cover in the name of Henry Wenman Newman of Thornbury Park, Gloucestershire.
