Historical & Antiquarian Prints
Fusing illustration and history, this 16th-19th century print collection displays wonders of the natural world. European explorers not only mapped geography of the New World, but also catalogued flowers and animals. Found within the pages of their scientific journals are exquisite hand-colored prints. From a woodcut of West Indies fishermen, to a hand-colored engraving of a blossoming camellia, this auction showcases a rich variety of wildlife and print techniques. Any natural history enthusiast will appreciate imaginative designs that are rooted in tradition.
