Compiled from surplus sheets of various editions of Compton's Northern Mountains. The first half of the book is erratically numbered with the plates and text of the 1818 edition. The latter part contains material dated as late as 1836, but old sheets and plates were also employed; watermarks range from 1819 to 1833. Probably compiled by Messrs. Bohn, to be sold cheaply for clearance. Cf. Abbey.
The aquatints are printed in sepia and blue.
