Bewick Collection - Newcastle Libraries
"The Pease Collection of Bewick books was bequeathed to Newcastle Libraries in 1901 on the death of local businessman, John William Pease (1836 – 1901), the result of 40 years of collecting. The Bequest contains 331 volumes, in fine bindings, of first and later editions of all Bewick illustrated books, over 1000 wood blocks by Thomas Bewick and his workshop, letters, drawings, water-colours and Bewick’s own tool chest and the table where he worked."
