A MEMORIAL OF ALEXANDER ANDERSON, M.D., THE FIRST ENGRAVE...
by Lossing, Benson. J.
First edition. With 38 plates and other illustrations in text. A scarce and interesting work, well illustrated with examples of Anderson's ouevre. Bewick was avowedly a seminal influence and several of the plates show Anderson's engravings after Bewick. An Appendix contains an autobiographical sketch of Anderson (1775-1870) written in 1848 at the age of 73. Blank top portion of half-title excised, appendix a little spotted.
