[BOREMAN, Thomas.] - Ange Denis MCQUIN. A Description of More than Three Hundred Animals, including Quadrupeds, Birds, Fishes, Serpents, and Insects. London: B. and R. Crosby and Co., 1812. New edition, 12mo (181 x 102mm.) Wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous wood-engraved illustrations. (Occasional spotting, half-title and title trimmed, toning, blanks replaced.) Late 19th century tree calf, gilt tendril borders, red morocco lettering piece to the spine, t.e.g. (rebacked, sunning to spine, endpapers replaced, some surface wear to front pastedown). Note: the lettering piece mistakenly has 'Bewick's Cuts'. However, as Iain Bain points out in 'Thomas Bewick: An Illustrated Record of His Life and Work', Bewick himself, in his memoir, criticised the quality of the cuts in this volume. This volume was originally published in the 1730's by Thomas Boreman.
