BANKS, William, 1806-1866 : VIEWS OF THE ENGLISH LAKES.
Windermere : J. Garnet, [ca.1860]. First edition. A set of highly attractive engravings of the Lake District engraved by William Banks & Son of Edinburgh for the local publisher, printer and postmaster, John Garnet or Garnett (1825-1896) – vignette views of Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Furness, Derwentwater, Grasmere, Coniston, Buttermere, Keswick, Ullswater, Borrowdale, etc. Banks was a skilled draughtsman as well as an engraver and most of the views are from his own drawings, with others by Theophilus Lindsey Aspland (1807-1890), a pupil of George Cooke. Banks’ relationship with the publisher was close enough for him to name one of his sons John Garnett Banks (1860-1890).
