I have seen this title advertised with 12 collotype plates and believe the 5 shown on this page represent an incomplete folio from an original 12 plate unit. I have dated this unit to ca 1911 because it was listed in an advertising flyer published then.

The fascination and allure of the sweet landscape chains the will.

Seest thou my home?--'tis where you woods are waving, In their dark richness, to the summer air.
