"The heyday of engraving on steel was the second quarter of the nineteenth century. . . . The indefatigable Bartlett was the chief producer of volumes of steel-engraved views. For many years he ranged through two continents making or collecting drawings. . . . Collectors not seeking representations of familiar scenes will probably find the grandeur of his Swiss subjects most appealing" (Ray, Illustrator & the Book in England, pp. 40-42). Switzerland is one of the many illustrated travel books produced by Bartlett in collaboration with his friend and fellow traveller Dr. William Beattie; their works enjoyed great popularity in the 19th century.
