Pictures from Wood Engravings by Thomas Bewick, by John Rayner, 1947; this King Penguin has reproductions of wood engravings by Thomas Bewick (1753 – 1828) with text (still under copyright) by John Rayner. I have not included the text.

The animals are probably from A General History of Quadrupeds (Newcastle Upon Tyne, 1790). See also The Bewick Society for more information.
