The essays are grouped as "Derbyshire Dales", "Derbyshire Hills", "Derbyshire Halls", Derbyshire Spas", "Railway Readings" ("Through the Peak on the Engine of the Express" and "Over the High Peak Railway"], and, finally, "Random Readings". The last section of over 50 pages is of advertisements by mostly Derbyshire firms. Loosely inserted is a print, minimally embrowned, cut out of a contemporary work, captioned "Winter-Time - Feeding the deer in Chatsworth Park", which has been professionally hand-coloured.
