Abstract:

Consists of approximately 80 prints, mostly aquatints, that illustrated 19th-century English books of varied subject matter.

Scientific illustration is represented by 29 aquatints of minerals used in SPECIMENS OF BRITISH MINERALS SELECTED FROM THE CABINET OF PHILIP RASHLEIGH (London, 1802); an aquatint of the astronomical observatory at Oxford from William Combe's A HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD (London, 1815); and a French aquatint of an astronomical diagram.

The spirit of the Pre-Raphaelites is exemplified by four original woodcut proofs made by W.J. Linton after drawings by Dante Gabriel Rossetti for Christina Rossetti's THE PRINCE'S PROGRESS AND OTHER POEMS (London, 1866). The American landscape is accounted for by a lone engraving by W.H. Bartlett, "The President's House by the River," published in N.P. Willis' AMERICAN SCENERY (London, 1840). Ten aquatints by various English artists for William Combe's A HISTORY OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE (London, 1814) and 15 proofs of illustrations by August Hervieu for Frances Trollope's LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF JONATHAN JEFFERSON WHITLAW (London, 1836) complete the collection.
