The images on this page are all of ancient buildings and ruins in all the counties of Wales. For ease of browsing - and hunting for your favourite - they are arranged county-by-county. Those marked "Buck" are from the first issue of 1725-42 printed by the Buck brothers; those marked "Sayers" are from the second issue of the 1770s as printed for and sold by Sayers.

Each of the scans are from the Sayers print (unless only the Buck is available), but whether from Buck or Sayers, they are reduced versions for reference purposes. The original sheets are about 19" x 11½", with image sizes approximately 14½" x 7½". Click on the image to bring up a larger view, and contact us at wilfrid@defreitasbooks.com if you need to see full-sized scans or more detailed condition information.

Remember these are "stitched scans", that is to say overlapping partial scans, so you may notice mis-matches especially along the edges of the images and light uneven shading overall; these are only in the scans, not in the original prints! Most of the originals are in crisp clean condition, with no folds or creases (unless specifically noted); condition details provided on request. If in doubt, unstitched but lower resolution photographs can be sent to you.

NB.#1 These were scanned over a long period, with several scanners: as a result some show more margins than others though, unless otherwise noted (only a couple of cases), all have roughly the same width borders; some also appear brighter and/or with browner ink than others.
NB.#2 Most of the colour images were prepared from photographs and, as a result, show shadows and/or more intense colouration.

Un-matted, as these are, we offer them at
$60 (Buck) / $35 (Sayers) each for the black and white,
$75 (Buck) / $50 (Sayers) each for the hand-coloured

(unless otherwise priced below the image).
