One of only 160 copies printed: an elegantly designed portfolio presentation of ten of Bewick's preliminary drawings (reproduced from the originals by the Meriden Gravure Company) alongside reprintings => from the original blocks of their final engraved forms. (One engraving only is done from a later plate, which provides instructive contrast of effect.)
The introduction was signed by the printer, Robert Hunter Middleton, a Bewick aficionado who expertly reproduced his work.
Provenance: From the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.
