William's Daniell's A voyage round Great Britain, undertaken in the summer of the year 1813, and commencing from the Land's-End, Cornwall, was one of the most important British topgraphical works of the 19th century. Its 8 volumes, originally published in parts from 1814 to 1825, contained 308 aquatint plates, entirely drawn and engraved by Daniell. In the introduction to the work, Daniell noted, "While the inland counties of England had been so hackneyed by travellers and quartos, the coast has hitherto been most unaccountably neglected ... It is the design, therefore, of the following voyage, minutely to describe the whole coast round Great Britain."
