Description:

South Down Polled Sheep of the improved breeds. From the Stock of the late Duke of Bedford, Woburn.

From Cyclopaedia, or Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature made by 100 contributors, most of whom were nonconformists. They were specialists in their fields, covering the arts and humanities, agriculture, science, technology, and medicine. Artists like John Farey, Jr., and the engraver Wilson Lowry made the images.

Sydneham Edwards (1768 - 1819)

Initially worked for Curtis’s Botanical Magazine, until a dispute with the publishers when he started his own rival magazine The Botanical Register. He was born in Monmouthshire, a from an early age demonstrated a precocious talent for drawing and when only 11 years old had copied plates from Flora Londinensis. A friend of William Curtis, the publisher visited the Edwards and recommended the boy to Curtis. Curtis proceeded to have Edwards trained in both botany and botanical illustration. Edwards was a prolific talent and between 1787 and 1815 he produced over 1,700 watercolours for Curtis’s Botanical Magazine. He established The Botanical Register in 1815 after a disagreement with John Sims, Curtis’s editor.
