[picture: Front Cover, Morris, Picturesque Views]

Words and pictures from “A Series of Picturesque Views of Seats of The Noblemen and Gentlemen of Great Britain and Ireland with descriptive and historical letterpress” edited by The Rev. F. O. Morris, B.A., author of a “history of british birds,” dedicated by permission to her most gracious majesty the queen.

A fabulous example of eight-colour printing, using of course multiple print runs; I do not know whether the same plate was hand-inked, or whether multiple plates were made.

I only have Volume I. Kudos to the bookseller, Crescent Books in New Orleans, for not ripping the book apart and selling the prints.

The picture shows a man and a woman, the woman with a long crinoline domed skirt (shaped like a dalek), the man with a cane pointing at a small dog; they are walking on a smooth lawn with [...] [more...] [$]

Newstead Abbey

A partly-ruined romantic gothic mansion beside a lake with a fountain. [more...] [$]

[picture: Whitley Court]

Whitley Court

Witley Court was badly damaged by a fire in 1937, some 60 years after this picture was made. The description in the book tries hard, i think, to hide the writer’s disdain for the self-made. [more...] [$]

[picture: Wilton House]

Wilton House

It was hard to do justice to the delicate colours of this 8-colour printed plate of Wilton House in Wiltshire. [more...] [$]
