Dingley's marginal illustrations leave most of each leaf blank, to be filled in as the owner pleases. Pages 5 and [7] provide printed examples of how the pages may be used. The former includes lyrics and music to Auld Lang Syne (signed "Faithfully yous, R.B."); the latter a set of three drawings under the heading "Reminiscences of a summer visit, 25th June, 1887, A. Dauber."
The places illustrated are listed on page [3]. All are notable tourist destinations in Great Britain, such as Windsor, Stonehenge, Balmoral, and Torquay.
The volume is subdivided into sections of 4 leaves, on variously tinted papers, each section divided by an unillustrated white leaf.
