Samuel Prout (1783–1852), an outstanding watercolour artist, found his niche as an early pioneer of lithography. He travelled extensively on the continent, particularly in the north, recording the land- and townscapes of Germany and Belgium. The present work was one of his finest, featuring close-up views of streets and squares.
Large folio, lithographed title, dedication and 50 lithographed plates, foxing to title and dedication leaf, plates clean, contemporary half morocco gilt lightly rubbed, a very good copy.
