Morris Birds 2, D to L

Original Francis Orpen MORRIS Published in London. Benjamin Fawcett,asked Morris to write the text when Morris became Vicar of Nafferton.Morris had a reputation as a popular writer on natural history in general and birds in particular. His first book had appeared as early as 1834, A guide to an arrangement of British birds. However, his association with Benjamin Fawcett was to have remarkable results, particularly for the study of ornithology. A History of British Birds was entirely printed and bound in the small North Country village of Driffield, Fawcett's residence and shop, and shipped in tea chests to London. It was a resounding success. Work on A History of British Birds probably began in 1848. Publication, which took over seven years to complete from June 1850, was undertaken in monthly parts costing one shilling. Each part contained 24 pages of letterpress and 4 hand-coloured plates. The final six volume work contained 358 coloured plates. One thousand copies of the first part were initially produced, but such was the demand that Fawcett quickly had to move into larger premises. Alexander Francis Lydon was one of Fawcett's principal engravers, contributing much in technique and design. A team of women colorists under very strict scrutiny first from Fawcett then his wife (a former colourist herself) hand colored each plate. Morris became an early advocate for conservation and was instrumental in founding the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. All were published with Original Hand Colouring, applied at the time. published by George Bell & Sons, London, The artist is Benjamin Fawcett; the engraver Alexander Francis Lydon..£10 each unless marked less 1ST EDITION: 1851-7 .
