Written to accompany exhibitions and to form a permanent introduction to the subject of Victorian reproductive engravings, the author reveals the technical virtuosity of the Victorian engravers. With an introductory essay and selection of images that throws a great deal of light on what was most acceptable to the Victorians in their own contemporary paintings, as well as on the public issues and private interests with which they were most concerned.
