Most widely held works by John Cousen
American scenery : or, land, lake, and river illustrations of transatlantic nature by Nathaniel Parker Willis( Book )

6 editions published in 1840 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathaniel Parker Willis (1806-67) came from a publishing family and began his writing career with contributions to magazines. He also wrote poetry and plays but is best remembered as a travel writer. In this two-volume work of 1840, his contribution (described on the title page as 'the literary department') was to provide a narrative for prints from the engravings of William Henry Bartlett (1809-54), the famous British landscape artist, who followed already established tourist routes in the United States to make his drawings. Each of Bartlett's 119 engravings is accompanied by a short essay by Willis, who states in the preface that it is his intention to bring to the reader at home 'at small cost' the sensations of travel which 'those whose lot is domestic and retired' would never be in a position to experience for themselves. This extremely popular work remained in print for thirty years

Liber fluviorum : or River scenery of France by Leitch Ritchie( Book )

1 edition published in 1853 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Turner's illustrations and Ritchie's text first appeared in slightly different form in 1833, 1834, & 1835 in three volumes that came to be known as Turner's Annual Tours; the plates were reissued in 1837 as Rivers of France; and the first edition of Liber Fluviorum. was published in 1853. In any of these guises the lovely plates confirm Gordon Ray's verdict that "Turner achieved his best landscapes on steel in this series." [See Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England., 16.]
