Description

Brief Description

A two-volume catalogue (1866 8) of influential wood engravings attributed to Thomas Bewick and his younger brother John."

Learn More about the Book

The names of Thomas Bewick (1753 1828) and his brother John (1760 1795) are synonymous with beautiful, delicate and accurate woodcuts of the natural world. Their instantly recognisable style was to influence book illustration well into the nineteenth century. The antiquary and print collector Thomas Hugo (1820 76), best known as a collector of Bewick woodcuts, first published this two-volume catalogue of his extensive collection in 1866 8. It has since emerged that many of the items sourced from printers' offices and booksellers across the country including Thomas Bewick's own publisher, Emerson Charnley cannot be authenticated as the Bewicks' work. The collection was nonetheless a remarkable assemblage of valuable materials, including uncut first editions, woodblocks, handbills and broadsides (all regrettably dispersed after Hugo's death) which might otherwise have been lost. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Volume 1 comprises the catalogue, which includes an appendix of Bewick portraits, letters and memorabilia."
