Southwestern University Bewick Collection
The late Mrs. Herman Brown (nee Margarett Root, Southwestern, 1915, A.B.) presented the Thomas Bewick Collection to Cody Memorial Library in 1950. The collection once belonged to David Croal Thomson, an art expert and critic (1855-1930) who collected Bewick's works. Thomson also wrote The Life and Works of Thomas Bewick, Being an Account of His Career and Achievements in Art With a Notice of the Works of John Bewick and The Water-Colour Drawings of Thomas Bewick. A record of Southwestern University Library's entire Bewick collection is available on the library's online Voyager catalogue. The links above contain scanned images from Southwestern's Bewick Collection that are not readily available elsewhere, including Bewick's A Brief Description of the Principal Foreign Animals and Birds and Wood Engravings from a Pretty Book of Pictures for Little Masters and Misses, as well as a link containing miscellaneous items such as rare letters and newspaper clippings.
