Collection consists of a four-volume set of proof engravings by Henry Sandham for his illustrations in Century Magazine and other publications.

These proofs were printed from the blocks before they were electro-typed and cannot now be reproduced except by being engraved again. The cost of each print in this book was fifty cents. Hy. S.”
