About this Item

Introduced and With Editorial Notes by Iain Bain. London: Gordon Fraser (1981). Two volumes, hardcover, oblong quartos (10 x 9 inches), bound in full cloth, enclosed together in a cloth-covered slip case. Pp. 233, 230, illustrated in color. A very fine copy of the First Edition. An essential work for anyone engaged in a serious study of Thomas Bewick (1753-1828), the father of English wood engraving and one of the most important illustrators of his day. All the drawings and watercolors have been reproduced in their original size and for the first time are shown together with their related engravings, with dates assigned to all the engravings. Most of these drawings and watercolours were never shown in Bewick's lifetime, and their only formal showing was that given by Bewick's daughters in 1880. This work also includes a wealth of ancillary material on Bewick's workshop and apprentices. Bookseller Inventory # 8327
