A general history of quadrupeds by Thomas Bewick( )

168 editions published between 1790 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late eighteenth century, the British took greater interest than ever before in observing and recording all aspects of the natural world. Travelers and colonists returning from far-flung lands provided dazzling accounts of such exotic creatures as elephants, baboons, and kangaroos. The engraver Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) harnessed this newfound interest by assembling the most comprehensive illustrated guide to nature of his day. A General History of Quadrupeds, first published in 1790, showcases Bewick's groundbreaking engraving techniques that allowed text and images to be published on the same page. From anteaters to zebras, armadillos to wolverines, this delightful volume features engravings of over four hundred animals alongside descriptions of their characteristics as scientifically understood at the time. Quadrupeds reaffirms Bewick's place in history as an incomparable illustrator, one whose influence on natural history and book printing still endures today

Aesop's human zoo : Roman stories about our bodies by Phaedrus( Book )

4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Aesop's Human Zoo, the Cambridge classicist John Henderson puts together a set of up-front translations - fifty sharp, raw, and sometimes bawdy, fables by Phaedrus rendered in the tersest colloquial English verse." "Providing unusual insights into the heart of Roman culture, these clever poems open up odd avenues of ancient lore and life as they explore social types and physical aspects of the body, regularly mocking the limitations of human nature and offering vulgar or promiscuous interpretations of the stuff of social life." "Beginning to advanced classicists and Latin scholars will appreciate the original Latin text provided in this bilingual edition. The splash of classic Thomas Bewick wood engravings to accompany the fables renders the collection complete."--BOOK JACKET
A history of the cries of London, ancient and modern by Charles Hindley( Book )

13 editions published between 1881 and 2011 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Hindley (d.1893) wrote and edited many books on British popular literature and culture, including Curiosities of Street Literature (1871), Tavern Anecdotes and Sayings (1875) and The History of the Catnach Press (1886, also reissued in this series). This 1881 study traces the distinctive 'cries' of street traders in London from the time of Chaucer to the Victorian period and maintains Hindley's characteristic focus on people rather than mere facts. His use of nearly two hundred woodcuts, including many by Bewick, and his discussion of them at the beginning of the text, testifies to his enthusiasm for the printing press. Using evidence from 'broadsides, books or engravings', music and drama, Hindley vividly portrays the sights and sounds of the streets of London from many different periods, describing the vendors to be found in particular locations, and merchandise from cherries to ballad-sheets, shellfish to lavender, and scissors to ink.--
