Three Dogs, Thomas Bewick

The Three Dogs was engraved between 1784 and the publication of The Quadrupeds in 1790. The small cut of the terrier ‘marking’ his way was used as a tail piece in the same book. The blocks have retained their original condition to a remarkable degree.

The image is printed directly from the boxwood block engraved by Thomas Bewick, by Iain Bain using an Albion hand press made in 1836. The paper is 145gsm Zerkall moiuld-made dampened before printing.

Numbered edition of 500
