Notes From N.P.Willis's American Scenery.

William Henry Bartlett (1809-1854) was a British landscape artist famous for his views of all parts of the world which appeared in a series of travel volumes issued in the nineteenth century. In 1837 British publisher George Virtue began to publish what would become the most successful of all Bartlett's series, a work written by American author Nathaniel P. Willis and entitled American Scenery: or Land, Lake, and River Illustrations of Transatlantic Nature. The book and its prints were first issued in a series of parts running to November 1839, and then the entire work was issued in two volumes in January 1840. This book and Bartlett's prints were a huge success. American Scenery was reissued numerous times up to about 1870 and the prints (and pirated copies of them) appeared not only in these volumes, but also in magazines, other books, and as separate prints.
