The author of the text in vols II and III is anonymous. Originally issued in parts from January 1835 to early 1838 (vols I and II) and from late in 1841 to mid--1842 (vol. III). The additional engraved title-plate to vol. I reads 'Cathedral Churches. Of Great Britain ... By H & B Winkles' over and within a view of the entrance to the chapter house at Salisbury Cathedral; that to vol. III reads 'Cathedral Churches Of England And Wales. ...' over a view of the south entrance to Lincoln Cathedral; and that to vol. III the same above a vignette of 'Lichfield Cathedral. West Entrance.' Apart from the ground-plans of each cathedral the plates are picturesque interior and exterior views engraved by Benjamin Winkles after drawings by Hablot K. Browne, Henry Winkles, J. Archer or Robert Garland. Robert Garland entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1827 where he presumably attended Soane's lectures. With the plates printed on India paper. See BAL, Early printed books, no. 3690.

Copy Notes Imperfect; volume III is wanting altogether and vol. II lacks letterpress preliminaries and all plates and letterpress after p. 64. The truncation of the Soane Museum copy of this work is almost certainly a consequence of Soane's death on 20 January 1837, the latest date on the plates that are present being 2 January of that year.

Binding Mid-19th-century half calf, blind-tooled borders, marbled-paper boards, gilt-ruled spine, black spine-label. Two volumes bound in one, uniformly with Allom's Devonshire & Cornwall illustrated (q.v.) and Westmorland, Cumberland, &c. (q.v.), and Henry Gastineau's Wales illustrated (q.v.).
