Pictures from The Mansions of England in the Olden Time by Joseph Nash; i have the second edition, published by “Offices of ‘The Studio’, London, Paris, and New York, 1906.

For this book Joseph Nash painted watercolours of some English stately homes, both interiors and exteriors, and these were turned into engravings. The first edition was an “elephant folio” released in 1838, with three more volumes in the folowing years, in full colour, although it had many fewer pictures. If i win the lottery maybe i can get a copy to scan with the museum-quality equipment that’s already here!

I bought this, i think, in a fabulous second-hand bookshop in Prague not far from the Astronomical Clock.
