Alongside Bawden's posters and linocuts, the book is illustrated with the contemporary caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson, George Cruikshank and James Gillray as well as botanical illustrations by Franz Bauer, Evelyn Dunbar and others. The book also reproduces in full Bawden's previously unpublished manuscript guide to Kew Gardens, drawn by the artist when he was just 19, and the redrawn illustrations and maps in Robert Herring's 1930 book Adam and Evelyn at Kew

Edward Bawden in the Middle East by Nigel Weaver( Book )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
"This book brings together forty-five of Edward Bawden's watercolours from World War II, now housed in the Imperial War Museum collection and many published here for the first time, to produce a fascinating insight into Bawden's view of the Middle East. Alongside these evocative images the text traces Bawden's life and career, in particular his time as an Official War Artist; a chapter by Robin O'Neill sets the political context in which the allied forces and Bawden found themselves during the war, and sketches the drastically changed political scenery since then; finally, we hear from Bawden in his own words through two articles originally published in The Geographical Magazine in 1945"--Jacket

The text is amply illustrated by both illustrations and photographs, and is aimed primarily at a younger audience. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in zoology and the physics and biology of motion."--Page 4 of cover

At the end of the novel, instead of attaining these powers, Vathek descends into a hell ruled by the demon Eblis where he is doomed to wander endlessly and speechlessly"--Wikipedia

The history of Rasselas, Prince of Abyssinia by Samuel Johnson( Book )
4 editions published between 1975 and 1979 in English and held by 62 libraries worldwide
Johnson's adaptation of the popular oriental tale displays his usual wit and perceptiveness; sceptical and probing, his tale nevertheless suggests that wisdom and self-knowledge need not be entirely beyond reach. This new edition relates Rasselas to Johnson's life and thought and to politics, society, and the global context of the Seven Years War. --from publisher description
Design : Edward Bawden [and] Eric Ravilious by Brian Webb( Book )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 60 libraries worldwide
"Design is an excellent introduction to the work of two major British designers and artists, Edward Bawden (1903-1989) and Eric Ravilious (1903-1942)." "Featuring some previously unpublished images, this book presents, in over 100 illustrations, every aspect of their creativity, including advertising, designs for wallpapers, posters, book jackets, trade cards and ceramics." "Bawden and Ravilious met in the Design School of the Royal College of Art in 1922, members of a generation of students described by Paul Nash, one of their tutors, as belonging to 'an outbreak of talent'. Their shared interests in illustration led to experiments in print making. Bawden's early attempts at lino-cutting developed into a skill that he used until the end of his life. Ravilious quickly developed into one of the most renowned wood engravers of the twentieth century."--Jacket
