Cassell’s Book of the Horse:  Antique Lithographs of Equestrian Subjects

Carriage HorseHorses Cassell. This Carriage Horses Print comes from Cassell's Book of the Horse. An English antique chromolithograph. Printed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son Litho, 1885.

Equine & Equestrian prints – from Cassell’s Book of the Horse, published in England  c.1885.  These are lovely antique lithographs, of horses and equine & equestrian subjects. The book was published by Cassell, and lithographed by Vincent Brooks, Dat & Sons Lith., to perfection. In this kind of lithography, every color seen in the final art work, had it’s own limestone plate specifically made for that color.  

In all of these decorative antique prints,  each color was applied each in a separate process. Each color was applied, from a separate key-stoned, limestone plate or lithograph. Hence the word chromolithography. Chromo meaning color, lithography meaning printing from limestone plates.  The colors were applied from the lightest to the darkest colors. An antique printing method. Antique means over 100 years old. As you may imagine that the registration would have to be perfect in order to sell a book with pictures in focus, or registration, the colors had to be exact which ended up being extremely laborious and expensive to produce.

Each print measures 8 1/4 x 10 1/2″.  $125. each. Call Anne about a full set, or buy individual pieces. 413-245-4197 or click here to contact us.
