Excerpt from Notes and Memoranda Respecting the Liber Studiorum of J. M. W. Turner, R. A: Written and Collected by the Late John Pye, Landscape Engraver, Edited, With Additional Observations, and an Illustrative Etching

Of the prints themselves, two noble collections are now the property of the nation one, in the Art Library at South Kensington, containing a complete set of fine impressions of the plates, in the first State in which they were issued by Turner to the public; the other, in the Print Room of the British' Museum, larger and more interesting to the connoisseur of engraving, and in some respects also to the student of landscape art. For in the latter, which includes the Pye collection, there are more examples of the progressive states of the plates; showing in various instances the artistic devices employed by the great painter to reinvigorate them when worn; and how he was ever labouring to inspire them with fresh charms, under new effects of light and shade.
