An Illustrated Itinerary of the County of Lancaster was published by How and Parsons of Fleet Street, London in 1842. The frontispiece of the book does not show the authors but the advertisement included before the preface states "The Editorship of the Work is committed to Mr. Redding; the manufacturing districts of the County of Lancaster will be described by W. C. Taylor LL.D., and the remaining portion by Mr. Redding." The work was to be published in monthly parts, each of 48 pages, with twenty to thirty wood cuts and one engraving on steel, from paintings executed by Mr. Creswick.
