Description

Originally published in 14 or perhaps 15 parts between 1813 and 1818, Landmann's views were the product of long service in the Pensinsular War. However, apart from one plate showing Sir Arthur Wellesley's headquarters in Vimeiro, they are of topographical rather than military interest, capturing the permanent characteristics of the Portuguese landscape remarkably well.

2 volumes, 2° (371 x 262mm). Half-titles. 76 plates, comprising 14 engraved maps, hand-colored in outline, 4 hand-colored aquatints showing tortures of the Inquisition, 2 hand-colored engraved plates of coins, and 56 hand-colored aquatint views after Landmann, including 11 double-page or folding, the majority by J.C. Stadler.

2 vol. (XIV, 607 p.) (XVI, 203 p.) : il., grav. color. ; 39 cm
