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.

The Evolution of Printing…

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.
