British prints: dictionary and price guide
Antique Collectors' Club, Aug 1, 1998 - Antiques & Collectibles - 368 pages
This revised edition carries on the tradition of the original British Prints being a comprehensive dictionary of British printmakers working between 1650 and 1950. Wide-ranging in scope, it covers eighteenth century mezzotint portraits, nineteenth century sporting aquatints and topographical views and 'original' etchings and lithographs in the twentieth century. It provides a convenient and accessible means of identifying a printmaker, looking up the concise biographical summary and ascertaining the printmaker's range of work and relative stature, as well as obtaining some idea of the likely value of the works. Arranged alphabetically rather than by period, the book contains over 500 black and white illustrations with sixty in colour, and reproduces many classic works of the period as well as some great rarities.
