Gallery of Scripture Engravings, Historical and Landscape, With Descriptions, Historical, Geographical and Pictorial 1867
This book contains all three volumes of this scarce work! In a desire to make this work interesting, not only as a pictorial publication but a reading book, the text connected with the copious engravings found throughout each volume aims at describing the subject or relating the circumstances in popular language. It is not intended that criticisms on the pictures themselves, or historical notices concerning them, should form a prominent feature of this undertaking: but this has not been altogether neglected, whenever the celebrity of the picture as a work of art, or other circumstances of interest, have seemed to require such attention.
