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. Adventually, c.1900 photographic off set printing replaced any and all antique printing methods, pretty much forever.

An Evolution of Printing and Age of Discovery…

The history of antique printing methods of the 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries is very interesting. My website consists of old prints, published in obsolete printing methods, that really do not exist today.  The entire subject revolves about how fast information could be published for readership. Readership in the old days revolved around money and new discoveries, especially in the area pertaining to natural history. If one could discover a new species of fish… Wow! That would boost the desire for information. It had a trickle down effect. Like today, in the OLD days, desire for information lead to wanting more and more information, almost a viscous cycle. Hence the production of publishing. First to publish religious material. Only the high priests could convey the printed messages. This lasted for a long time. Around 1800 or so, more people read. It was fashionable to be educated. Everyone could understand a beautiful illustration. They did not have to understand the words, but it encouraged understanding. Soon, the publications became subscriptions, everyone wanted them. Like today, everyone wants the latest devise. Initially periodical subscriptions were made to those who could afford it: royalty, clergy, noblemen, etc. Who could read? The answer is only the educated, super wealthy, religious, clergy, nobility, etc… Oftentimes on expeditions, specimens were collected and captured, many alive, many did not survive the journeys home, nor the conditions when relocated. Many journeys were three months at sea.  In the 18th and 19th Centuries museums of curiosities became the rage. Hoards of people would rush to museums to see exotic specimens brought home from expeditions of early explorers and naturalists. Royalty, Clergy financed explorations and hence the illustrations, publications that developed from trips. Often times young men, early scientists, aboard ships recorded the natural history sightings they saw along the way. They recorded every detail of the natural history specimens they came across. All of this absolutely fascinated the public. And so the history of illustration, depicting and describing what had been found, along these tremendous explorations was found. How fast the information moved forward can be seen through the history of printing. Exactly as the way things are moving forward these days, so did printing history. It started with very slow laborious hand drawn pages by scribes and monks onto velum, to copper plate engraving on hand made hand laid linen rag paper, and moved forward to faster and faster printing, from lithography, hand colored or not to printing in colors, chromolithography. All driven by readership subscriptions. It all ended about 1900. when photographic printing became the 20th century tool, to today, when everything is digital and untouchable on the internet.

John Gould Hummingbirds: Original Antique Lithographs from the 19th Century, in excellent condition and bright colors…

John Gould Hummingbirds: Original Antique Hand Colored Lithographs from the 19th Century:

John Gould Hummingbirds – revered by collectors and naturalists alike:

Perhaps the most prolific and beloved Ornithological Publisher of the 19th Century was John Gould. John Gould lived from 1804 to 1881 and was from England. In nineteenth century Europe his name was as well known as Audubon’s was in North America. Unlike Audubon, whose life’s work focused on one region, John Gould traveled extensively and employed artists to help create his lavish hand-colored lithographs in folio size. This effort was funded the merchant class, as well as the clergy and royal family. He published a total of 2999 different bird plates, which issued in parts of subscriptions that were sold or funded.  It is said that John Gould Hummingbirds collection of actual specimens was over 2000 skins. His father was a taxidermist for the royals, and spurred his interest in collecting specimens and depicting them through the art of lithography.  For one and one half centuries, and for many years to come, these beautiful, finely executed antique lithographs with water colors will complement your collection and home decor.

A Family of Hummingbirds or A Monograph of the Trochilidae, 1849-1861

Considered to be Gould’s passion and greatest work were his hummingbirds. Some four hundred eighteen species were depicted by the artists John Gould, H.C. Richter and William Hart.Each of these John Gould Hummingbirds exquisitely defines these beloved birds. John Gould’s hummingbirds are shown with with the flora indigenous to the area for the birds. Strong botanical elements add a dimension not found in other great bird books.  A Family of Hummingbirds or A Monograph of the Trochilidae, was published in England from 1849-1861.  These stunning hummingbird prints required the tremendous skill of lifelong craftsmen and apprentices. From the creation of the paper, lithograph and the application of the the color to the black and white lithographs: gold leafing, transparent oil and water colors, with highlights of lacquer and gum arabic. This is was speaks loudly to anyone who has the opportunity to appreciate the origian works of John Gould.

Lizar Monkeys Feature Photo

Our 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.
