[Arms of Newcastle on a Boundary Stone] c. 1797
4 x 8.5 cm
This vignette appears on the title page of every edition of the Land Birds, beginning in 1797. The transfer drawing is at the Natural History Society of Northumbria and Bain notes that it bears an inscription and the date of 1790, both indicating that it may have originally been intended for original publication of the Quadrupeds.
