“The author hopes no one will be so severe, as to think a work of this kind (tho a work only of amusement) inconsistent with the profession of a clergyman.”  

–William Gilpin, Observations

 

William Gilpin was an English artist, Anglican cleric, schoolmaster and author. He was most notable as one of the originators of the concept of the picturesque, a set of rules for depicting nature. This notion would be expounded upon and expanded by other contemporary philosophers.

 

Two first edition works from William Gilpin bound in one tome. “Observations…Cambridge” & “Observations…Hampshire…” are both filled with fascinating commentary on the countryside in England. With twenty & six engraved plates, respectively, each work is highly desirable for the aesthetic pleasure it provides. Illustrations in these volumes include views of castles, ruins, country roads, abbeys, and the city of Cambridge!
