Natural History and Gleanings illustrated for the first time many foreign species often drawn from live specimens held in captivity in London. Edwards etched his own plates and then hand-colored several copies before supervising others in the coloring. The result is a work of superb skill and breathtaking color that remains popular and is now increasingly rare. Such was the impact of Natural History and Gleanings, that Edwards is considered to have almost single-handedly popularized the art of bird and animal illustration and is thus known as “The Father of British Ornithology.”
