Book Description
THIRD EDITION. 8vo, pp. [6] publisher’s advertisements, 214; woodbury frontispiece of the author and two companions ‘camping out in a quiet corner’ folding double-page lithograph key map, large folding “Table of Distances”, 33 double-page lithograph maps with 97 woodbury vignette paste-ons, another leaf with 4 photograph paste-ons. A good copy of the third edition of this pleasing photographic ramble along the Thames, with pp. 75-168 covering a number of other waterways and canals connecting with the Thames and some instructions on the rigours of ‘Camping.’ For later editions Taunt used albumen photographs, probably due to the high cost of the permanent Woodbury process.
