About this Item

With 5 plates and 8 woodcuts by John & Thomas Bewick. Full contemporary calf, gilt spine, marbled endpapers; other than some minor foxing on preliminaries, an excellent copy with a pencil inscription on fly-leaf "M.S. Slocum, Pasadena" (and a full-page article on Slocum laid in). First octavo edition (preceded by the quarto edition of 1795). This book reveals the technical innovation and creative skill of Bewick, an artist who would radically change the art of book illustration in the next century. Written in two parts, the first includes a biography of Goldsmith plus his two poems, The Traveller and The Deserted village. The second contains a biographical sketch on Parnell, written by Goldsmith, as well as Parnell's poem, The Hermit. The quality of Bewick's engravings was so fine, that at the time of publication, many, including George III, did not believe that the engravings were done on wood, but rather copper. NCBEL, II, 1192.
