Ruari McLean, Victorian Book Design & Colour Printing, p.192: "On only one plate, no.4, with twenty five panels showing harmonious arrangments of colour, does there appear to be any hand-colouring. Plates 22 and 23 might be sketches, or notes, by a French Impressionist, and are, in their way, among the most improbable examples of colour printing of the whole century."
