= Roscoe p.117-180; Hugo 428; Ray 52: "Bewick deplored this well-produced volume, which to his mind could only serve "to feed the whimsies of bibliomanists", but he tolerated its publication. Though some of the engravings hardly rise above the chapbook level (...) the book is useful as a record of his work before he achieved his mature style."
