History of British Birds

by Thomas Bewick
Vol. I
containing the History and Description of Land Birds
Edition of 1816

Arms of Newcastle

Bewick published new editions of both volumes of the History of British Birds in 1816. There is very little difference between this edition of the Land Birds and that of 1809. The slight revisions that had been incorporated in the 1814-16 edition, such as the addition of the Peregrine Falcon and the second figure of the Pied Flycatcher, are also included here. Roscoe describes this edition in his Bibliography Raisonné, p. 94 to 96. By clicking on a title in the left frame on this page, you can view the vignette below as well as information related to it.
