Description based on a copy at the Yale Center for British Art. It is unclear whether the present set of 57 lithographs was issued by the publisher as a set or whether the set is a unique assemblage. Some of the lithographs are the same as those issued in the Behar amateur lithographic scrap book in 1828 (described in Abbey, J.R. Travel in aquatint and lithography, entry 449).
Lithographs after Charles D'Oyly, Elizabeth Jane D'Oyly, and George Chinnery.
