3 vols. royal 8vo. calf





FIVE VOLUMES, royal 8vo. cloth, uncut, 1885-87 Subscription price
The set consists of 5 volumes, royal 8vo.-

Vol. V, Memoir of Thomas Bewick, written by himself, with numerous
woodcuts prepared for a projected History of British Fishes, 1 vol.

As the original editions have become very scarce and very dear this new MEMORIAL EDITION-the first one in a collective form-gives, at a comparatively moderate cost, to the present generation a delightful opportunity of enjoying the artistic truth and vigour of Bewick's famous cuts in all their original beauty. The original blocks were purchased by Mr. Ward's sons and successors, who have now completed the work. Paper expressly prepared for the reception of woodcuts was used; and all the modern improvements of typography have been enlisted in order to secure brilliant and effective impressions.
