Copper plate engraving & lithography in brief:

A copper plate engraving is an antique printing method whereas a thin paper like piece of copper was attached to a block of wood. Tools called burins were used to engrave into the copper. The copper plate was carefully inked up and printed onto a piece of hand made rag paper. Water colors could be added by hand.

Lithography is an antique printing method. Generally a lithograph was printed in one color. 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 a key stoned limestone plate. An extended version of lithography, quite laborious requiring a very skilled craftsman to get the registration just right and not distorted.  Botanical illustrations done this way were frequently hand finished with water colors and almubin,  egg whites or gum Arabic to enhance the image.

Azaleas and Rhododendrons antique lithographs in vibrant colors! Date: 1845-1896.

Azaleas and Rhododendrons Antique Lithographs from 1845-1896

Dating from 1845-1896.   Azaleas by Linden produced from 1869-1896 from Belgium. Van Houtteano’s  date to Belgium just a bit earlier from 1845-1888, also Belgian.    Exquisite and STUNNING in color and condition.  In the antique printing method called chromolithography, every color was applied with an individual limestone plate. A special kind of limestone came out of a certain part of Germany. The limestone had the right porosity to create a lithograph. The process is similar to silk screening today. After each color was applied meticulously by lithographer, the image was finished by hand with gum Arabic, almuben, and/or watercolors.

The artwork is exemplary of Belgian botanical illustrations published during this time period of mid to late 1800’s.  Some of the azaleas and rhododendrons have issue folds as they were issued on a periodic basis.  Each print measure about 10 1/2″ x 14″ and matt up perfectly to 16×20.”

Victoria Regia or The Great Water Lily of America by William Sharp & John Fisk Allen, 1854.

This rare collection of beautiful antique chromolithographs are the work of William Sharp and John Fisk Allen. Entitled Victoria Regia or The Great Water Lily of America. The book was printed and published in Boston for the author John Fisk Allen. All the stages of botanical development are clearly illustrated. Exquisite details are beautifully executed. This species or Great Water Lily of America was of interest to everyone. The book was issued in paper wrappers. The contents include: Cover, Title, and Text pages. There is a brief account of the discovery of this lily. There are additional descriptions on the cultivation. Magnificent illustrations by William Sharp are the first of it’s kind produced in America. The illustrations were taken from specimens grown in Salem, Massachusetts.

A Brief History of This Collection of Early Americana:

William Sharp came to Boston from England in the late 1830’s, and jumped into printing colors from limestone plates-or lithographs. He was proficient with incredible detail and use of color. He was a natural at his profession and produced five of the 6 plates. John Fisk Allen did only one. Can you guess which one is Allen’s?

When this rare book comes on the market it is usually offered as Americana. It was the first chromolithography published in the United States. Chromo means color. Lithograph meaning printed from limestone.

Producing early subscriptions was all the rage in early America.  It was all about how fast magazines, subscriptions and books could be produced and published. Hand coloring took tremendous time, talent and money. Printing in colors, from limestone plates, certainly would be less expensive… IF you had a GREAT lithographer. In the process of printing in colors from limestone plates, a special kind of limestone needed to be procured to create a lithograph.  Adventually each color was applied, in a separate process, with an individual key stoned limestone plate, just for that color.  A fascinating study in itself.

Own one of the greatest pieces of Americana ever produced.

Lilies – Antique Botanical Illustrations are Classic yet Modern in feel.

These fold out antique flower prints are simple in color.  They are hand colored copper plate engravings on wove rag paper.  Published in London from 1801-1830, these are genuine antiques.  Predominately shown and for sale here is the work of Curtis and Edwards.  Each botanical illustration was published for the Curtis Botanical Magazine.  Issued once a month, the periodical was received by anxious and excited subscribers.  A small paperback like type of magazine.  Gardeners and well to do people who read would collect, discuss and define garden plans including many of the latest species described.

This grouping of Curtis and Edwards botanical engravings are the fold outs.  Carefully collected for years we are offering this beautiful set of modern looking ones for sale here.  Assorted flowers but quite simple in coloration to be considered for your modern home décor!  Classic artwork is timeless.

His water color illumination rarely varied from plate to plate, consistent in quality and the actual colors of the water color.  The Curtis Botanical Magazine started in 1787 and still is published today.

Each old flower print measures about 9″ high x 11 1/2″ wide.  They would be dramatic framed in a simple style.  Monotone large matting… Or perhaps an arrangement under an acrylic sheet of plexi glass to use in a modern home or loft. $125. Each. Click here to contact us.

The Art of Lithography:

The art of lithography was a very laborious process.  It took tremendous skill.  It was a life long craft, once a lithographer, always a lithographer!  No switching back and forth in careers in the OLD days. One would serve a long apprenticeship, sometimes years on end, with little to no pay, in order to become a craftsman like the one skilled to work on these rare Elwes Lilies Fitch produced.  The desired, original illustration was transferred onto a special kind of limestone.  The limestone came out of a certain area of Germany.  The limestone was cut into large slabs, about 1″ thick.  The illustration was meticulously drawn onto the limestone slab with a type of a greasy crayon. What was under the greasy crayon essentially was what was printed in relief.  The finished desired slab was then emerged into nitric acid.  The nitric acid burned away what was not covered by the greasy crayon.  That area was then in relief.  The greasy crayon was wiped off, inked up, and printed onto a piece of heavy wove rag paper.  (The making of the paper is another story).

The water coloring was meticulously added by a very experienced water colorist. Water coloring was also a life long career or craft.  Intense ink from minerals and vegetables and insects made up water colors in the early days. These water colored lithographs are vibrant and beautiful.  The prints themselves are in near perfect condition.  The lilies are stunning to look at in person

The history of printing is a fascinating subject, especially when it came to orchid prints. Western Europe was unfamiliar with the tropical species that were being discovered in tropical and exotic places.   Thus producing images and documentary encyclopedias of Orchis required hiring and employing vast numbers of highly craftsmen. 

People had life long trades of professional crafts during the 17th, 18th,and 19th Centuries. Paper making, hand made rag papers, wove rag papers, all employed prior to making paper from trees as we do today.  Antique printing methods include copper plate engraving, steel plate engraving, wood engravings. Lithographs and chromolithographs. Illumination by Hand Coloring, using water colors, and printing in colors by limestone plates. That doesn’t even take into account obtaining or creating the illustrations, producing the documentation and text…

Anne Hall Antique Prints is pleased to offer Lindenia Orchid Prints, Antique Lithographs, by Jean Linden, published in Belgium c.1885 of all varieties of orchids. The thrill of discovering new species of Orchis was extremely popular during the 1800’s. Of course most of the people learning about the new species didn’t discover them themselves.  Rather they discovered the botanical illustration published from the specimens themselves.  Publishers would record all the important information.  Subscribers were the recipients of the published data.  The orchid hunters included Jean Linden, who traveled to  South and Central America.  Linden also sold plants in his Luxemburg nursery.  Hunters gathered specimens. Brought them back to their country to cultivate.  Specimens were shown off in museum curiosities in cities around the world.  There were also many privately held collections.

Hand Colored Engraving entitled “Wine Making in California – at work at the wine presses by P. Frenzeny.”

This Rare Hand Colored Wood Engraving was Published by Harper’s Weekly in 1886. The vintage in California – at work at the wine presses by P. Frenzeny.  A water colored wood engraving coming from Harper’s Weekly in 1886.   It is considered the best piece ever to be produced on making wine in America.’  It was drawn by P. Frenzeny,  who was hired by Harper’s Weekly in the 1870’s and 1880’s to illustrate the most interesting scenes in the west.  He was considered one of the best western artist of the time.  And this marvelous illustration exemplifies Frenzeny’s work.  He won readership back from the aggressive competitive newspaper owned by Frank Leslie.

Every part of the vintage is shown, and in explicit detail:

The engraving reveals that the wine press is being worked manually.  The Chinese immigrants (who previously worked on the railroads, by the 1870’s are working elsewhere, such as this vineyard), are bringing the harvested grapes to be pressed. Grape collection baskets are clearly shown, as well as the huge barrels of wine.  Stomping of the grapes and the wine tasting are clearly shown.  In excellent condition.  This is a pertinent piece of winemaking history.

Outstanding condition with professional watercolor added.   15 1/2 x 22″   $1100.
