[picture: Front Cover, The British Isles (Vol 1)]

Pictures from The British Isles Depicted by Pen and Camera, “with thirty-nine coloured plates and six Rembrandt Photogravures” (Special Edition), published by Cassell and Company Ltd., London, Paris, New York and Melbourne.

The introduction is by Harold Spender, but there is no attribution for the main text.
