It also shows just the European views from:

"Picturesque Scenery" series (Ralph Hall) "Select Views" series (Ralph Hall)

There is a chapter covering individual views, not from series, another recording a few European views which appeared in series of British views covered in erlier volumes, and a final chapter covering mid-Victorian views of Russia and Ukraine. 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.
