History of British Birds

by Thomas Bewick
Vol. I
containing the History and Description of Land Birds
Edition of 1821

Arms of Newcastle

In 1821, Bewick published a new edition of the Land Birds. This seventh edition included several revisions, not the least of which was the appearance of 12 new figures of birds, and many new vignettes as well. Most of these appeared in the form of a Supplement, at the end of the volume, although Supplements to both volumes were also published separately, presumably for the benefit of those who owned previous editions. 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.
