The significance of some towns being underlined in red is given by the previous owner of the atlas John Hobson Matthews by means of a manuscript note in red ink he has added at the start of the atlas. He says
The places underlined in red ink are those in which a Catholic mission has been established between the era of the Reformation and the year 1840

For over thirty years renowned artists Philip and Glyn Martin have been touring Great Britain capturing, in finely detailed watercolour paintings, the couontry's much loved towns, villages and favourite places It has taken these talented brothers thousands of miles around Britain. They have painted scenes in rural villages, industrial towns and cathedral cities, tiny fishing villages and great city ports, humble cottages and stately homes. 
'Portraits of Britain' have rapidly become collectors items especially as only 850 prints are taken from each original.

Each print is one of a strictly limited edition, individually numbered out of 850 and signed. The original watercolours are used only for one edition and no other reproduction is made.

The high quality of printing and the material used sets these prints apart. They are difficult to distinguish from the originals as they retain so much of the feel and delicacy of watercolour.

 Here is the giant jute clipper Liverpool, the largest sailing ship under the red ensign at the beginning of the 1890's and specially built for the Calcutta jute trade, picking up a pilot off the mouth of the Mersey. This four masted iron ship built by Russel & Company of Glasgow in 1889 was owned by R. W. Leyland & Company of Liverpool. Her gross tonnage was 3396. Her length 333.2 feet, In breadth she measured 47.9 feet and in depth 26.5 feet. She could stow 26,000 bales of jute, a dead weight of nearly 6,000 tons. Her first master was Thomas Calder. When outward bound from Antwerp to San Francisco in 1902 under Captain Lewis, the Liverpoool went ashore in fog on the rocky coast of Aldnerey on the 25th February. She was under all plain sail at the time and the crash on the rocks broke her back. Her crew of 35 were saved.

The pilot schooner in the paining is the number 7 boat Lancashire Witch built by Michael Ratsey of West Cowes in 1863. Withdrawn from service in 1896. Sold in 1897 to Leith owners. Gross tonnage 56. 80.7 feet length, 18 feet breadth, 19.6 feet depth.
