Description of Travel Account
Private recollections of a travel to Dublin and the Wicklow mountains, dedicated to the author's sister, Katie, who was also of the party.
It is representative of many such accounts of the nineteenth century, combining among its illustrations prints and sketches by the author and family members who were in the company.
The demand for individual topographical engravings, sold in 'numbers', and for other visual mementos, such as pictorial letter sheets, was one outcome of the growing travel industry, before the era of the postcard. One of the original illustrations of the Devil's Glen was purchased on the spot, coming from an unknown artist.
