Thomas Bewick (1753-1828); an English wood engraver, naturalist, and ornithologist, born at Cherryburn House near Mickley, Northumberland, England.
Best known for his two volumes "The History of British Birds", published from 1797-1804, and for the technique he developed of carving in harder woods (usually box wood), against the grain, using fine tools normally favoured by metal engravers.
