BANKS, William, 1806-1866 : VIEWS OF THE ENGLISH LAKES.

BANKS, William, 1806-1866 : VIEWS OF THE ENGLISH LAKES.

Windermere : J. Garnet, [ca.1860]. First edition. A set of highly attractive engravings of the Lake District engraved by William Banks & Son of Edinburgh for the local publisher, printer and postmaster, John Garnet or Garnett (1825-1896) – vignette views of Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Furness, Derwentwater, Grasmere, Coniston, Buttermere, Keswick, Ullswater, Borrowdale, etc. Banks was a skilled draughtsman as well as an engraver and most of the views are from his own drawings, with others by Theophilus Lindsey Aspland (1807-1890), a pupil of George Cooke. Banks’ relationship with the publisher was close enough for him to name one of his sons John Garnett Banks (1860-1890).
Long demy 8vo (15 x 23cm). Engraved pictorial title and thirty plates. Two leaves of advertisements at the rear describe the various specialisations of Banks’ business, as well as listing numerous similar views obtainable from Garnet. Original cloth gilt; all edges gilt; slight wear to spine; a touch shaken and slack, but the plates clean, crisp and in very good order.
