The icons below represent full pages - 36 cm. x 25 cm., with bright colour images centred on quality white paper removed from this book, (not by me). Some of the reverses may have text, usually in double columns, often with illustrations in monochrome by C. J. Staniland, R.I.

These, often quite beautiful, illustrations from this 1901 popular book have, for decades been removed and sold as prints. If you peruse the print seller sites you will see the same plates for sale often at more than double the price I am asking.
