Cover of Wornum's travel journal "consisting of extracts from various works, and certain crude ideas and unsound inferences...written during the winter of 1835 and 1836 at Dresden". Wornum states that while in Rome in 1838 he wrote from these notes a detailed account of the history of ancient painting. This was then revised in 1841.
