About this Item: W. Davidson, Alnwick, 1814. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First edit, thus. SEVEN WORKS BOUND IN ONE. Later full calf. Bound without the original wrappers. The full set of seven volumes of these charming little chapbooks published by Davidson. Hugo, page 111, " I have inserted the publications of Davidson in the present Catalogue from the fact that it is indisputable that many of the engravings which embellish them not only came out of Bewick's workshop, but received at least their final touches from his own hand. Many were, doubtless, not so dignified, but from a large number the honour cannot be withheld". " This set is extremely desirable to the Bewick collector; as Fishes, Reptiles, and Insects fill up a gap in Bewick's works." " Davidson's 'Natural History' was done about 1814." Size: 12mo. Book.

About this Item: Sol, Hodgson, For Beilby & Bewick, Newcastle, 1805. Leather Bound. Bewick, Thomas (illustrator). First & Second editions. 335, 400 pages. 24 x 14.5 cm. Voluminously illustrated with wood-engravings. The first volume of this work was published in 1797 for which Beilby furnished the written descriptions with Bewick providing the text of the second volume. This copy, possibly a trimmed thick royal editions, variant A vignette on page 22 and uninked vignette on p. 285. First edition of Vol. I, second edition, Vol. II. Gordon N. Ray [ILLUSTRATOR AND THE BOOK IN ENGLAND, ETC.] "Bewick's use of end-grained blocks was widely imitated both in England and the Continent. Among his apprentices were some of the most distinguished engravers of the first half of the 19th century. When later artists like Gordon Craig and William Nicholson revived the tradition of creative work on wood, they turned to Bewick's example in freeing themselves from the trammels of reproductive engraving." BRUNET, Vol.I, p.839. Interior contents fresh and clean. Raised bands, spine panels richly gilt, triple gilt border fillets house an inner rectangle of fillets with gilt arabesques at the corners, light joint and extremity rubbing. Full dark green morocco.
