Anne Hall is a second generation rare print dealer, daughter of perhaps one of the most important rare print dealers in the world, Bill Hall and his wife Kathleen Manning, historians and owners of Prints Old and Rare, and Manning’s Books and Prints, located in Pacifica, CA. Anne Hall was taught at an early age about collecting and the value in collecting. Her father would not give her prints, but rather sell them to her at a very low price to instill the meaning of the value of collecting. She attended many book fairs and shows, and worked in the old print business from time to time. She first started collecting old postcards of Mackinac Island, Michigan. Then ephemera and books of the Island she summered on and collecting earlier pieces of all sorts. Of special interest were town views, the ships connected to the home she grew up in, and the home itself. Later her collection grew to collecting antique prints of women in athletics, rare antique prints of the Hopi Indians in Northern Arizona. And the rest is told if you have ever seen her at a show… We love New England, we love our rare antique prints and the shows we do, especially the world famous Brimfield Antiques Show!

Anne Hall Antique Prints
Mark Brady has the same exact passion for old and rare antique prints as Anne Hall. Mark was born and raised in Santa Monica, California. Shortly after moving to Northern California about 1980, he began working for Anne’s Father at Prints Old and Rare, then in San Francisco, learning many of the important details in how small businesses runs and extensive training in Geography and American History. Mark Brady is a walking and talking whiz when it comes to rare antique prints and associated subjects. When Mark Brady and Anne Hall started their own rare antique print business in 1990, they were off to a great start due to the great educations and experiences from Bill and Kathleen.

Our antique prints were produced from 100 to 350 years ago. We specialize in antique printing methods employed prior to the turn of the last century, before photo mechanical printing began around 1900. In lithography, first the original illustration was transferred onto a lithograph or a special limestone slab. The image was drawn with a kind of greasy pencil, emerged into nitric acid, burning away what was not covered by the greasy pencil. Wiped clean and inked up. In the case of an engraving, the image was transferred onto a metal plate where a variety of engraving techniques were employed. These antique methods required hand made hand laid and chain linked paper. Next the engravings (copper plate or steel plate) or lithographs, (sometimes multiple lithographs thus the term chromo lithography), were inked up and printed in their respective techniques. Many times colors were added with water colors by hand. Our subjects are timeless. We have old prints that can complete your room decor.
