Though written by Reverend Orpen Morris, A History of British Birds was first conceived by renowned English printer, Benjamin Fawcett. Fawcett approached Morris to write the text when Morris became Vicar of Nafferton, as Morris had a reputation as a popular writer on natural history in general, and on birds in particular. His first book appeared as early as 1834, a guide to an arrangement of British Birds. However, his association with Benjamin Fawcett was to have remarkable results, particularly for the study of ornithology. A History of British Birds was printed and bound in the small village of Driffield and shipped in tea chests to London.
