Portugal Illustrated in a Series of Letters
Should you enjoy travelling, across space and time, this book provides an incredible experience through its 44 lithographs by Joseph Skelton to accompany the text by William Morgan Kinsey. A rare first edition, with leather binding, recording the journey to Portugal made in 1827 by this member of the clergy in order to raise the country’s profile among the British. Out of his diaries and the letters written to his friend Thomas Haynes Bayle, Kensey published Portugal Illustrated, an intriguing description of the country, illustrated with drawings made by his journey companion. From landscapes to monuments, people, and customs, this is one of the most beautiful books ever published on Portugal.
