Full black morocco lettered in gilt on front board and spine. Beveled edges, top edge gilt, gilt turn-ins. Large quarto.

Title page, half-title page, and text printed in black and red. With a list of subscribers. Endpapers very slightly foxed. Contemporary ink signature on front flyleaf. A fine copy, clean and bright. In her preface, Julia Boyd (1846-1892) writes, "The real interest of this volume…lies in the fact that it contains the last that remained unpublished of the works in the hands of the [Bewick] family, and that they all must have been executed under the eye and direction of Thomas Bewick himself…an authentic reprint from the whole should be taken before their final dispersal thus affording to future collectors a record of these copperplates and blocks, and means for their identification" (p. xii-xiii).

About Michael R. Thompson, Booksellers, ABAA/ILAB

Our office is located in Los Angeles on West Third Street, between the Beverly Center and Farmer's Market. Though we gave up an open shop after more than thirty years, we welcome serious customers and dealers. We are normally open from 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday. Since some of our less expensive books are located in a temperature-controlled storage area offsite, you may want to call ahead of time to insure that the book you want to see will be available. We feature a stock strong in literature, history, Western philosophy, women's studies, education, history of science and fine printing and artists' books. We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. We have books from the 15th to the 20th century in all prices ranges. We do appraisals for income tax and insurance purposes. We purchase individual books and libraries. Proprietor: Carol Sandberg
