Bradley Martin 1385: "These two volumes were Bewick's greatest achievement. They combined excellent craftsmanship with the perfect marrying of type and engravings on the page. They also showed a deep knowledge of, and sympathy for, the subjects of his figures. Bewick's reproduction of the texture of the feathering was unique, also his detail of the plumage and the arrangement of the feathers... The wood-engravings were the first really accurate and true pictures of our most common birds, and set a new standard in their illustration."
