The first print is a portrait of the Prince, later King Edward VII. The remainder are views in Canada and the United States. Plates are undated. Most bear the imprint of Charles Magnus & Co. (some lack imprint). Two leaves at front, dated December 1860 and January 1870, bear 16 autographs, in black ink. The autographs appear to be those of the Prince's traveling party. They include: Albert Edward (the Prince), Newcastle, Sl. Germans, Lyons, Robert Bruce, Henry W. Acland, Gardner D. Engleheart, Edward Thornton, A.F. Pickard, Henry Fitzroy, E.D. Fane, and P. Le Poer Trench. The volume was presumably produced as a unique copy, perhaps assembled by Charles Magnus & Co. from existing stock.
Bound in contemporary dark green roan; with the heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales on the front cover. Bound by E. Walker & Sons, New York City. Bookplate: Maude M. Monell.
