Descripción London: Samuel Leigh, 1824. 16 hand-coloured aquatint views after Clark, each numbered and mounted on a thin trip of card (200 x 70mm) with grey wash border top and bottom, contained in the original cardboard 'tray and lid' box with two divisions, hand-coloured aquatinted title label to outside lid, the aquatint views are slightly spotted, the book is rather rubbed with the label on the upper lid faded and stained, lower lip of box missing. The 16 hand-coloured cards, each with a landscape view, when placed together form a single panoramic view which is capable of rearrangement to form a endless variety of differing scenes. The subject typically shows a lake-shore with trees, figures, and animals in the foreground, island-castles and ships in the middle distance, and a background of mountains. It is claimed that Clark's set of sixteen cards are capable of 20,922,789,880,000 permutations!. Nº de ref. de la librería 33992
