LIMITED EDITION FACSIMILE of 200 copies signed by the Editor. Oblong quarto, 173 pp. Illustrated throughout including frontispiece portrait in colour of Bewick from a watercolour on ivory by D B Murphy, and colour facsimile of the complete sketchbook page-by-page including covers. Quarter cloth with gilt titles to spine with thread-sewn marbled paper-covered boards. New. Signed by editor Nigel Tattersfield to limitation leaf to rear.
 
Facsimile of the only sketchbook used by wood engraver Thomas Bewick, with detailed notes by Nigel Tattersfield, the leading authority on all matters relating to Bewick and his work. Bewick is known for making his sketches on scraps of paper, so this is a remarkable survival of his work in progress; subject matter includes detailed sketches of farm animals, birds and buildings together with notes on his travel and expenses. The animal sketches for ?agricultural gentlemen? were eventually used for the 1800 Fourth Edition of Quadrupeds.
