Queen Victoria recorded her visits to Scotland with Prince Albert


George Washington Wilson was intent on broadening opportunities for the public to buy his photographs. In 1868 he produced a portfolio of 42 photographs to accompany the queen’s Leaves from the Journal of Our Life in the Highlands. The photographs were landscape views taken in Scotland, which were mounted on card. The folio was sold separately from the text, and it was the responsibility of the purchaser to match the photographs with the text and bind the whole together, according to instructions provided on the verso of the title page.
