Anonymous. The 'Advertisement' is signed 'J. Storer and I. [i.e. John] Greig' (fl. 1802--1853). James Sargant Storer was a draughtsman and engraver who was also employed to illustrate J. Britton and E.W. Brayley's Beauties of England and Wales, 1801--1815 (q.v.). Between 1803 and 1812 he published a number of illustrated works in collaboration with the topographical artist John Greig. This work was issued in monthly numbers between 1807 and 1811, making 10 volumes when complete. See B. Adams, London Illustrated 1604--1851 (1983), pp. 271--2.
