This is a series of 26 landscape scenes shaped as letters of the alphabet; rebound in a 20th-century binding. The whole collection is a part of the great collection of the british museum in London.

Letter A: upper part composed of three figures around a fire at the edge of a slope to small pond, forming the lower part of the letter; outline by trees.

Letter B: a vista on level country, outlined by trees and branches and the edge of a rise with two figures as the bottom part of the letter.

Letter C: a castle on cliffs on the left; waves of the sea shaping the lower curve, clouds the upper one.

Letter D: a semi-circular landscape scence with mountains in right distance; a crag with trees shaping the left outline of the letter.

Letter H: two rocks at a lake connected by a bridge crossed by a figure and a cow.

Letter L: a seascape with a cliff and flying gulls as left outline, the sea shaping the bottom outline, a sailingboat as serif on the right.

Letter M: composed of willows and a spruce growing at a pond with ducks on the left; the branches growing into opposite directions outlining the two triangles of the letter.

Letter S: composed of two sailing boats one on distant left, one in foreground carried to the right by a wave, and of clouds and seagulls above.

Letter W: a ruinous mossy pointed arch in landscape, flanked by two trees growing in opposite directions.

Letter Y: Two juxtaposed trees, growing at a river and stretching into opposite directions; two cows in front of trees, the right one drinking out of the river.
