J M W Turner's 'Picturesque Views in England & Wales' is arguably the finest & most ambitious series of British topographical engravings ever produced on copper.

The work began in 1826, when Turner, in collaboration with the engraver, Charles Heath & the print-sellers Jennings & co, planned to produce 120 engravings of British towns, landscapes & ancient buildings

In 1838, the project was aborted with only 96 of the intended engravings produced. In order to prevent the plates falling into other hands, Turner acquired them for 3000 pounds at auction & never allowed them to be republished, thus ensuring their rarity.

This auction is for two very finely engraved hand coloured attractive 19th century ‘Richmond Hill and Bridge, Surrey’ & ‘Saltash, Cornwall’ which appeared in J M W Turner's ‘Picturesque Views in England & Wales’ (London Moon, Boys & Graves, 1832-1838)
