A sequel to Vivian's volume on Spain, this series of lithographs is largely devoted to Portugal, including views of Lisbon, Cintra, Setubal, Arrabida, Leiria, Coimbra, Porto, Villa do Conde, Guimares, Braga, and Ponte do Lima. However, there are equally picturesque scenes from Vigo, Malaga, Granada, and Valencia. The order of the plates differs from the Abbey copy. Abbey Travel 138; Palau 372195.
