antique prints, maps and watercolors

New Directions for a New Season!

Halloween is coming up soon so we could not resist posting this illustration from a children's book. We love this scarecrow's pumpkin head and his jaunty friendly demeanor.

We are pleased to be adding to our offerings of vintage photographs of Native Americans. The mid 19th century albumen photographs by Antonio Zeno Shindler of Dakota Indians are terrific additions to our inventory of McKenney and Hall lithographs and Edward Curtis photogravures.

One of the things that we enjoy most about our work is the research and sleuthing that a purchase often requires. The large, striking and beautiful watercolor attributed to Mary Elizabeth Price is such a work. 

We are well known for our large selection of antique botanical prints of flowers, fruit and trees but we are also continually adding to our inventory of antique garden plans such as this one from Krafft's 1809 series. 

The covers of nineteenth and early twentieth century books can be spectacularly decorative. We will be adding more of these to our inventory when we find them.
