Some engravings from William Davison’s New Specimen of Cast-Metal Ornaments and Wood Types, printed at Alnwick, Northumberland, in about 1840.

William Davison’s printing house was well-known for many years; he is also known for having corresponded with the famous engraver Thomas Bewick, and some of the engravings in the specimen book appear to be by Bewick and are marked with a B in the book.

The images do not have captions in the printed specimen book, just numbers.
