Details

Genre/Form: Wood engravings
Proofs
Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Alexander Anderson; William P Morgan; Garret Lansing; Samuel Wood & Sons.
OCLC Number: 79168917
Notes: Final leaf incorrectly numbered 171. Leaf following leaf 47 numbered 47 1/2.
Ms. note on p. 171: All but the last of this series are duplicated on p. 188 (folioed as "171").
Rebound; original lettering piece retained: R. Wood [rule] 1820.
Struck from the original blocks; Most are the work of Dr. Alexander Anderson, and many are signed "A" or "AA" or "Anderson"; some signed "M" & one "Morgan", or "L," are most likely the work of Anderson's pupils, Garret Lansing and William Morgan. Some of Anderson's earliest engravings on wood are included; at least one appeared in a book published as early as 1792.
Illustrations numbered in ms. (final no. 2228); some wood-blocks in N-YHS collection still bear corresponding numbers on attached tissues. Some additional proofs have been mounted beside their final versions. These are uniformly fainter and may reflect artist's proofs, or proofs pulled subsequent to 1820.
Description: 171 [i.e. 189] leaves : all ill. (wood engravings) ; 25 cm.
