Some Information: The scenery in the neighbourhood of Mill Beck in great Langdale, is the most interesting kind; and includes many of the picturesque object so eagerly sought after by the visitor to the Lakes.

"Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text.

My use of the term "an original print/illustration" is a pictorial image made in a manner which allows it to be multiplied, and originating from the date stated. This includes examples of various methods of printmaking including engravings, etchings, woodcut etc. Many prints would have been originally bound in a book at some time as was this one.
