Synopsis
John Bewick was one of the first designer-engravers in England to make his living by illustrating books. His popularity resulted in contributing illustrations and engravings to no less than 60 titles. Nigel Tattersfield's book draws on largely unpublished correspondence, John Bewick's own ledger, and the collection of Bweick material in the British Museum. Fully illustrated, with a biography and checklist, this text aims to represent a significant contribution to the history of children's books and popular art in the 18th century.
