Jacobs Monkeys, Italian Black and White Copper Plate Engravings, Published in 1810.

Each of these rare antique copper plate engravings of monkeys has a little foxing, but other than that, are in good condition.  The paper is hand made but is heavy wove and the impressions are strong with intense ink.   All of them were published in Italy in 1810.   The field and specimen illustrations were collected, transferred onto a thin sheet of copper attached to a board.  Seeing that copper is soft,  it could be  these lovely old engravings.  The workmanship and details of each piece is excellent and very life like for year of 1810.

Human curiosity drove naturalists to publish books on new discoveries.

Human curiosity drove the supply and demand to publish books on new species of animal life being discovered.  Naturalists would travel and document.  Big money by Royals funded these naturalists and then engravers, and publishers.  The wealthy not only subscribed to what we know today as rare books,  but it was a status symbol to have a broad education as to natural history.  Once a book was published,   it could sit in a wonderful library,  and shared with others.  In this case it could be perfect for testing one’s Latin.

William Lizar Monkeys are tiny Charming Scotch hand colored monkey engravings from Jardine’s Naturalist’s Library, 1833 that measure 4 x 6 3/4″ each priced at $50. each.

Charming Steel Plate Engravings with Water Colors Applied by Hand, 1833 measuring 4 x 6 3/4″ each, $50. each shipped in the USA.

A steel plate was the hardest surface that could used in antique printing method.  A painstakingly amount of time and precision was needed when creating a steel plate engraving.  William Lizar’s firm located in Edinburgh, Scotland was proficient and in high demand for creating life like encyclopedic images of all of the natural history known at the time.  Once again it was a time of curiosity, finding new and undiscovered species.  It was almost a frenzy of curiosity in the least.  Sold by subscription for the masses to buy,  the immense series was published over a 40 year time period.  The water coloring was added at the time of production by a professional staff of water colorists.  Believe it or not one of the hardest things to come by in producing something like this would have been the paper on which to print them.

Having depicted all the known birds of North America, but still lured by his love of nature and art, he began on his last drawing expedition up the Missouri River in the summer of 1843. With the aid of his son, John Woodhouse Audubon, he created the first attempt ever to document and depict all the mammals of North America. First came the elephant folio edition, then came the octavo edition,  which theses hares and rabbits come from.

This is the work of John James Audubon. These antique prints are a part of American History as they are original hand colored lithographs.  Coming  from the First Royal Octavo Edition published by John James Audubon in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the year of 1844.  They were drawn from nature by John Woodhouse Audubon.  Drawn on stone called a lithograph by William E. Hitchcock. Lithographed, printed and colored provided by the publisher, J.T. Bowen, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1844. The Quadrupeds of North America, which encompassed a total of 150 native American four legged,  or “quadruped” mammals, each individually documented and portrayed in their land natural settings by John Woodhouse, John James’s son. This was a collaborative work between the very famous 19th Century American painters: John James Audubon and his two sons: John Woodhouse Audubon; and Victor Gifford Audubon; and the naturalist Reverend John Bachman. They documented and portrayed what J.J. Audubon considered a dwindling resource: the native mammals set among the splendor and majesty of the uninhabited America landscape. The team traveled westward from Audubon’s home in Mill Grove, Pennsylvania up the Missouri River and through territory just previously explored by Lewis and Clark. From the Canadian border of the Northern Russian Territories, now Alaska, southward to Mexico. This monumental journey was extremely hard on the wildlife team, and therefore influenced the compositions of their artwork and paintings, to some degree.  Despite tumultuous weather, these old lithographs are a pertainent record of North American animals. The Quadrupeds of North American is a wildlife essay which provides a classic contribution to both American History and the artwork that documented it during the early to mid 19th Century. The American Review, a Whig journal, heralded the national origin of the Quadrupeds: “We have at last have a Great National Work, originated and completed among us- authors, artists and artisans of which are our own citizens. the Bible of Nature!” Most of this information was sourced from the book entitled: John James Audubon in the West. Published in 2000 in New York by Henry H. Abrams.

The illustrations of JJ Audubon’s Mammals, or his Quadrupeds of North America are important as they documented the animal life in North America in the early 1800’s. How were they published? The illustrations were transferred onto a specially crafted flat piece of limestone. What adventially would be in relief was drawn in with a kind of a greasy crayon. It took tremendous skill to be a lithographer. One would serve an apprenticeship for years before becoming a lithographer. If you were not good, you would never work for a major firm. Your job depended on your skill. Once finished with meticulous detail, the limestone plate was emerged into nitric acid. The nitric acid burned away the parts of the limestone that was not protect extend by the greasy crayon. The plate was cleaned off, inked up and printed in black ink. The porosity of the limestone had to have a just the right consistency and posits for printing purposes. The coloration was added professionally by hand at the time of production, back in 1855.

Copper plate engravings are old antique prints. It was an antique printing method, like photographs in the old days, so that people could see images of what these studies were about. In copper plate engraving, a very thin piece of copper was attached to a block of wood. Tools called burins were used to engrave into the copper. While the paper was slightly damp, the copper plate was carefully inked up and printed onto the piece of hand made rag paper, actually engraving the paper. Water colors could be added by hand, using the finest natural products obtained from everywhere on the Earth.

Lithography is an antique printing method. It came after copper plate engraving. Generally a lithograph was printed in one color, black. A type of greasy crayon was used to draw onto a special type of limestone, with just the right porosity. After the image was completed, the limestone was emerged into nitric acid, burning away what was not under the greasy crayon, leaving that portion in relief. It was inked up and printed. The image frequently was illuminated with water colors.

Chromolithography is an antique printing method whereas each color was printed from individual key stoned limestone plates. An extended version of lithography, quite laborious requiring a very skilled craftsman to get the registration just right and not distorted, or render the image out of registration. The process virtually replaced the laborious and expense of hand water coloring.  Eventually, c.1900 photographic off set printing replaced any and all antique printing methods, pretty much forever.

A Brief Explanation about Chromolithography:

Chromo means color.  Lithography is the art of printing from limestone slabs.  Chromolithography is antique printing method.  A lost art of the 19 Century to the early 20th Centuries.   A certain kind of limestone came from a certain part of Germany.  It had the right consistency or porosity to become a printing slab of stone.  A type of a greasy crayon was used to draw the image sought to be seen.  Emerged into nitric acid, the stone unprotected by the greasy crayon was burnt away.  What was in relief, was going to be the  image. Multi complicated…  each and every color was applied with a key stone limestone plate.  Imagine if you will… the talent required to produce large posters like these.  The skill of getting the registration just right.  Once again I point to the long apprenticeships served by those involved from paper making to printing.  And at extremely low pay.  If you were good apprentice, which was served for years, then you would move forward.  If you were not, good at least, then you were in the streets LITERLLY.

Fantastic Beautiful Antique Equestrian Artwork!

Henry Stull American Thoroughbreds!  These antique chromolithographs were published in Boston, Massachusetts in 1888. They are considered some of the most important antique prints ever published of American Thoroughbreds. These antique horse chromolithographs were published after the oil paintings Henry Stull. He is considered to be one of the best artists on Equestrian art. The prints themselves are uncommon antique horse prints.  Published in 1888 to celebrate the re known work on American Thoroughbreds. The Stull paintings of American Thoroughbreds are considered some of the best ever done on equestrian subjects. Only one person or museum could own an original painting, therefore these striking chromolithographs were produced, so the fine art of the painter, could be enjoyed by the enthusiastic crowds of “horse people.”  

Antique Chromolithographs of American Thoroughbred Horses

In this antique printing method, an individual slabs of limestone were specially tooled and processed, known as lithographs, one for every color depicted. In the antique printing method known as chromolithography, every color seen in the final art work had it’s own key stoned limestone plate. Each color was applied with individual key stoned lime stone plates. From the lightest to the darkest colors. It was extremely laborious. Hence another antique printing method. As you may imagine that the registration would have to be perfect. The colors had to be exact.

I will always remember spending time on small working farms when I was about 10. One farm was in Petoskey, Michigan hippy friends of the family. The other in Chardon, Ohio. Aunt Clara’s. It was so fascinating to see how the whole farm worked as a unit. Memories I will never forget. Lucky enough to experience it through the eyes of a child.


Smart animals are the pigs! The other Pigs. Favorite four footed, furry farm animals! Here we have old pig prints. Antique engravings and lithographs of pigs. Great old farm pig prints to collect. In the antique pig engravings, the original illustration was transferred onto a prepared block of wood, engraved with burins and ultimately inked up and printed onto pieces of paper. In the lithographs of pigs, either one stone, or many stones (used in chromolithography), were printed from key stoned limestone plates. Images were drawn onto the slabs with grease like pencils. The stones were emerged into nitric acid. Burning away the unprotected parts, this which was what would be left in relief, the image ultimately seen once inked up and printed as the finished illustration.  Picture the scene… 4 footed… furry! Oink Oink!!  Antique prints. These are great farm animal prints. Old 4 footed furry pig prints: great for the kitchen & your funny farm!
