antique prints, maps and watercolors

New Directions for a New Season!

While we have long been known for our expertise with the works of John James Audubon, it is not often that we have his most spectacular Havell engravings for sale. The Summer or Wood Duck is one of his very best.

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. The description details the preponderance of evidence that supports the attribution.

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.

We specialize in antique views of the United States, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, the far East and Africa but we have never before offered this large view of Nantucket.
