The first two volumes of this set published in 1870, with this 3rd coming 8 years later. Date of publication deduced from a quotation in 'The Life and Death of Llewellynn Jewitt' by William Henry Goss, (1889), p. 326: "Here is a brief letter referring to his [Jewitt's] last volume of 'The Mountain Lake and Landscape Scenery of Great Britain' exhibiting in few words his kindness his joy and his sorrow: 'Winster Hall, December 23rd 1878: Will you do me the favour to accept Vol 3 of my 'Lakes' only out this day ...?' "
