The portfolio is in blue buckram with red labels. 21 1/2 x 18 3/4 inches. Sis plates were carefuly selected for their state of preservation as well as the quality of the images. They were printed by Anthony Dyson using old stocks of paper acculumated over the years by Drury’s friend, Robin Tanner. Fine set
