Notes

Title-page: Stedman, John Gabriel, 1744-1797. Narrative of a five years' expedition, against the revolted Negroes of Surinam, in Guiana, on the wild coast of South America, from the year 1772, to 1777, elucidating the history of that country, and describing its productions, viz. quadrupedes, birds, fishes, reptiles, trees, shrubs, fruits, & roots. Vol. I. Second edition corrected. London : Printed for J. Johnson ... & Th. Payne, 1806.

"The 81 plates are dated Dec. 1792, Dec. 1793, Dec. 1794, and Dec. 1795, and 41 have no engraver's name. Thirteen are signed "Blake Sculpt."; besides these, GEB & Keynes (1921) are confident that Blake also engraved the plates opposite volume 1, page 227; volume 2, page 104; and volume 2, page 296, which are not signed."--Cf. Bentley.

The title pages are engraved.
