"A tour-de-force of Leightons colour printing. It contains 24 full page color plates by Leighton Brothers, of such variety that together they make of the book a kind of manual of color printing. In instructing beginning watercolorists, Barnard here showed the successive states of producing a drawing; at the same time this illustration showed the successive stages of printing a color plate. Among other prints in the book are some excellent examples of Leightons new method of coloring with relief metal plates. There are also a number of interesting studies in color juxtaposition. The volume is remarkable for the continued brilliancy of its colored inks" (J. Friedman, Color printing in England, no. 83).
