"Considered Knight's most important work in the field of color printing, this popular publication was originally issued in ninety-six parts during 1844 and 1845. It contains twenty-four colour plates and nearly 2500 wood engravings illustrative of every sort of English antiquity. Very large numbers of this book seem to have been produced, at least when compared to a work like Baxter's Pictorial Album, and thus Knight is credited with being the first publisher to make color illustrations available to a mass audience.". (Friedman) "a unique and wonderful publication." (Hardie) Burch, Colour Printing and Colour Printers, pp. 143-44. Friedman, Color Printing in England 1486-1870, 58.
