quarto, (xii), (354)pp. A Biographical Dictionary of Bookplates from the Workshop of Ralph Beilby, Thomas Bewick & Robert Bewick 1760-1849. From the dust jacket: "Though seldom acknowledged, the spare-time production by Thomas Bewick of his celebrated natural histories was supported by the vigorous activity of a general engraving business involving Bewick, his partner Ralph Beilby and their numerous apprentices, Revealing a vast range of work, from banknotes and inscriptions on silver, to the making of type punches and bottle moulds, the workshop's surviving records are unique in their diversity and quantity. In recent years these records have been used in the study of engraved silver, pottery transfers and the preparatory studies foor Bewick' s wood engravings. But Nigel Tattersfield's account of the several hundred bookplates engraved on copper and wood, executed and printed in the workshop over a period of 89 years, is quite the most extensive and thorough in its use of the primary sources." With over 300 illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 7557
