The Ports, Harbours, Watering-Places, and Coast Scenery of Great Britain. Illustrated by views taken on the spot, by W. H. Bartlett; with descriptions by William Beattie, M.D.
Published by George Virtue, London, 1842


Original steel engravings over 175 years old • Sheet size: 8 x 10¾ inches*
(* The paper size varies slightly, some plates have been trimmed but still offer very generous margins.)

Born in Kentish Town, London on 1809, the young Bartlett was apprenticed to John Britton (1771-1857). He became one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation, travelling not just throughout Britain, but to the Americas in 1839-42. In the mid- to late-1840s he travelled extensively in the Balkans and Middle East. He died of fever on board ship returning from his last trip to Israel in 1854. Wm Bartlett
Due to the age and type of paper used, there may be some foxing on the plates. Please click on a thumbnail image for enlarged view.
