BEWICK, Thomas. A Supplement to the History of British Birds. Newcastle: Edward Walker. 1821.

Imperial 8vo. Original brown paper-covered boards with printed label to front, sometime rebacked; pp. [3] - 50, [3] - 49, illustrated throughout with engravings by Bewick; previous owner's singature and bookplate to front endpapers, occasional spots, otherwise very fresh, very good.
Second edition. These supplements to the 1821 editions of Land Birds and Water Birds were slightly enlarged from the first edition, which was also issued with an 1821 imprint, although the second edition seems to have gone on sale in 1822. They are most frequently found bound in editions of the Birds but were initially issued in this one volume form.
Roscoe 29a and 30a.
