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.
