Portrait Frontis: Line engraving by John Burnet from a painting by James Ramsay 1817

Page 1

Annotation accompanying vignettes reads: “Extract From The Life Of Bewick. A Passion for everything Northumbrian gives character to his sketches. All his scenery is the product of the district; the moors of Kielder, Millfield Plain and Flodden Field, the banks of Coquet, North Tyne and Till are all depicted in the vignettes – it is evident that all is a faithful transcript of nature; the shapes of the hills, the sweep of the moors, the character of the cliffs and stones, the features of the river scenery and the compositions of the rocks in his marine sketches all unite to demonstrate this. In fact Bewick’s theory of art was to copy nature.”

23. Winnowing Corn In A Farmyard c. 1797
Thomas Bewick (1753-1828).
7.2 x 8.3
Appears in 1st edition of The Land Birds (1797) and usually appears in the introductory section of all editions.

The annotation accompanying the vignette reads: “The headpiece at the commencement of the introduction to the British Birds presents an excellent view of a farm yard - everything is true to nature; the birds assembled near the woman seen winnowing corn are tho’ on a small scale represented with the greatest fidelity; even amongst the smallest the wagtail can be distinguished from the sparrow. The dog, feeling no interest in the business, is seen quietly resting on the dunghill; but the chuckling of the hens announcing that something like eating is going on has evidently excited the attention of the old sow and brought her and her litter into the yard in the expectation of getting a share. The season, the latter end of autumn, is indicated by the flight of field-fares, and the comparatively naked appearance of the trees; and we perceive that it is a clear, bright day from the strong shadow of the ladder projected against the wall, and on the thatched roof of the out-house. A heron, a crow, and a magpie are perceived nailed against the gable end of the barn; and a couple of pigeons are seen flying above the house. The cut forms at once an interesting picture of country life, and a graphic summary of the contents of the work. John Jackson On Wood Engraving”. (A treatise on wood engraving, John Jacskon, P589)

49. A Thief And His Load c.1804
Luke Clennell (Apprenticed 1797-1804).
3.6 x 5.8
Appears in the 1st edition of The Water Birds, (1804, P196). This vignette is mentioned in Charlotte Brontë’s Jane Eyre (Chapter 1): "The fiend pinning down the thief's pack behind him, I passed over quickly: it was an object of terror".

The annotation accompanying the vignette reads:

“Of these death-white realms I formed an idea of my own: shadowy, like all the half-comprehended notions that float dim through children's brains, but strangely impressive. The words in these introductory pages connected themselves with the succeeding vignettes, and gave significance to the rock standing up alone in a sea of billow and spray; to the broken boat stranded on a desolate coast; to the cold and ghastly moon glancing through bars of cloud at a wreck just sinking.

I cannot tell what sentiment haunted the quite solitary churchyard, with its inscribed headstone; its gate, its two trees, its low horizon, girdled by a broken wall, and its newly-risen crescent, attesting the hour of eventide. The two ships becalmed on a torpid sea, I believed to be marine phantoms. The fiend pinning down the thief's pack behind him, I passed over quickly: it was an object of terror. So was the black horned thing seated aloof on a rock, surveying a distant crowd surrounding a gallows.

Each picture told a story; mysterious often to my undeveloped, understanding and imperfect feelings, yet ever profoundly interesting. Jane Eyre. Vignettes to Bewick’s British Birds.”

Page 19

The annotation accompanying this page of vignettes reads: “The execution of the plumage in Bewick's birds is the most masterly thing ever yet done in wood-cutting; it is worked just as Paul Veronese would have worked in wood, had he taken to it. His vignettes, though too coarse in execution, and vulgar in types of form, to be good copies, show, nevertheless, intellectual power of the highest order; and there are pieces of sentiment in them, either pathetic or satirical, which have never since been equaled in illustrations of this simple kind; the bitter intensity of the feeling being just like that which characterizes some of the leading Pre-Raphaelites. Bewick is the Burns of painting. Ruskin’s Elements of Drawing.”

119. Cows & A Magpie c.1797
Thomas Bewick (1753-1828).
5.1 x 7.5
Appears in the 1st edition of the Land Birds (1797, P74). However, the birds do not appear in the vignette illustrating British Quadrupeds (1800) and the version in the Land Birds has the birds printed to the left of the magpie, whereas they are placed to the right in this proof.

The annotation with this vignette reads: “Two cows standing in a pool, under the shade of a dyke-back on a warm day. In this cut Bewick has introduced a sketch of a magpie chased by a hawk, but saved from the talons of its pursuer by the timely interference of two crows”. (A treatise on wood engraving, John Jacskon, P590)

120. The Pig-Sty Netty c.1805
Thomas Bewick (1753-1828).
4 x 7.3
Appears in the 1st edition of the Land Birds in its first state (1797, P285) and in the 1805 edition in its second state. According to Iain Bain (cf. Bain II, 178-179), the transfer drawing in his collection is by Bewick, while the pencil and watercolour study at the Natural History Society of Northumbria is by Johnson. Chatto states the block was altered by E. Willis in July of 1798 by inserting a peg to hide the man's backside, but Bain (who owns the original block) says that this is in error since the alteration was made by scraping down the block and re-engraving it. The fact that the first state appears at the very end of the 1800 Figures of the Land Birds volume published in 1800 (in the collection of the Edmonton Art Gallery) would seem to bear this out. However, this proof differs from both the first and second state as the man in the netty is completely obscured. This would suggest an anomalous state which is not demonstrated in the original wood block in Bain’s collection.

121. Drunk On The Kings Birthday c.1797
Thomas Bewick (1753-1828).
4.5 x 7.6
Appears in the 1st edition of the Land Birds in its first state (1797, P62).

The annotation with this vignette reads: “An old Miller lying asleep behind some bushes. He has evidently been tipsy and from the date on a stone to the left, we are led to suppose that he has been indulging too freely on the King’s birth-day, 4th of June”. (A treatise on wood engraving, John Jacskon, P589)

An Annotation accompanying the piece reads: “Eloquent tribute to the memory of Bewick by Professor Wilson. Have we forgotten “the Genius that dwells on the banks of the Tyne”, the Matchless, the Inimitable Bewick? No- His books lie on our parlour, bed-room, dining room, drawing room, study table and are never out of place or time. Happy old man! The delight of childhood, manhood, decaying age! A moral in every tail-piece- a sermon in every vignette. Not as if from one mountain flows the stream of his inspired spirit, gurgling from the Crawley Spring so many thousand gallons of the element every minute, and feeding but one city, our own Edinburgh. But it rather oozes from unnumbered springs. Here from one scarcely perceptible but in the vivid green of the lonesome sward, from which it trickles away into a little mountain rill – here leaping into sudden life, as from the rock- her ebubbling from a silver pool, overshadowed by a birch tree- her like a well asleep in a moss-grown tree, built by some thoughtful recluse in the old monastic day, with a few words from scripture, or some rude engraving, religious as scripture, Omne Bonum Desuper – Opera Dei Mirifica.”
