A complete 10 volume run of Jennings' Landscape Annual. Primarily written by Thomas Roscoe (1791-1871), with illustrations by David Roberts (1796-1864), the series was remarkably successful both critically and commercially. The Gentleman's Magazine (July, 1834) commented, on the release of the first book: 'The great charm of this work must be considered to exist in the masterly sketches of Mr. Roberts, who has piled up his towering battlements and frowning castles, amid the wild and lofty mountains that rise to guard them; or detailed to us with a rich and curious pencil, the fine arabesque courts, halls, and gateways and galleries, the marble fountains and colonnades, the rich capitals, the fretted domes, and elaborate ceilings, which even now, beautiful in their decay, give a melancholy assurance of their former surpassing loveliness and grandeur. We have no hesitation in pronouncing this to be one of the most beautiful Annuals'.
