There are also separate chapters dedicated to William Cowper and William Shakespeare, and a final chapter covering a range of individual patterns. Some of the series are well known but several are virtually unrecorded; some made for domestic consumption, others for the American market. Every known scene is listed, some titled, many identified, nearly all illustrated in colour. In many cases a source print from which the scene was copied is also recorded and illustrated. A comprehensive list of items is provided, along with references to illustrations elsewhere.
