It was published in London by Frederick Warne, and, though undated, it is listed as "A New Edition with Steel Engravings." It is probably from the mid to late 19th century. The Steel Portraits are small steel engravings (1 1/2 X 2) of various authors printed four to a page. Some of the 150 - 180 authors include: Herschel, Coleridge, Pepys, Plutarch, Lamb, Addison, Webster and many, many others. While essays seem to predominate there are also stories and poems. Quite a nice and attractive collection of classic writers and works collected together.
