2 editions published in 1782 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Clergyman, schoolmaster and writer on aesthetics, William Gilpin (1724–1804) is best known for his works on the picturesque. In his Essay on Prints, published in 1768 and reissued in this series, he defined picturesque as 'a term expressive of that peculiar kind of beauty, which is agreeable in a picture'. First published in 1782, the present work was the first in a series which recorded his reflections on the picturesque across British landscapes. It traces the journey he made, equipped with notebook and sketching materials, along the River Wye and into South Wales, visiting such notable sites as Tintern Abbey. As well as describing his route and its highlights, Gilpin includes several reproductions of his pen-and-wash drawings. Further developing and exploring the concept of the picturesque, his later volumes of Observations on various parts of Britain are also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection

The religion of nature delineated by William Wollaston( Book )

2 editions published in 1759 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This treatise on natural religion examines the following questions: (i) is there really any such thing as natural religion, properly and truly so called? (ii) if there is, what is it? and (iii) how may a man qualify himself, so as to be able to judge, for himself, of the other religions professed in the world; to settle his own opinions in disputable matters; and then to enjoy tranquility of mind, neither disturbing others, nor being disturbed at what passes among them? In addition, the nature of moral good and evil is a theme that is advanced throughout the papers appearing in this book"--Book. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)
