The Ports, Harbours. Watering Places and Coast Scenery of Great Britain
Illustrated with 127 engraved plates, including two frontispieces and two engraved title pages. The remainder are steel engraved plates of coastlines and views of all major waterways in England.
This work was begun by Finden. The book was the revised and enlarged by Beattie and W.H. Bartlett, the latter of whom did most of the engravings. These utterly romantic views are among the best to be made in Victorian England.
