  • Antique Americana Prints
    Because the capturing of these grand western vistas required Muybridge to use huge glass collodion treated plates he was approached by ex California governor Leland Stanford to photograph his beloved horse The principal purpose was to settle a wager based on the positioning of a horse s legs in the action of trotting the question being whether all four hooves came off the ground at the same time After a few unsuccessful attempts Muybridge managed to set up a battery of cameras enabling him to record split second movements His continuing work with animals and models in motion eventually led to his invention of the zoopraxiscope a moving picture machine that showed a rapid succession of images Throughout the 1880s Muybridge lectured in America and abroad With the help of Thomas Eakins he found sponsors at the University of Pennsylvania and there Muybridge continued his work taking thousands of locomotion studies of men women children animals and birds The results were published in a epic portfolio of 781 folio prints after his photographs Animal Locomotion Muybridge s motion studies are considered to be a critical step in the evolution of photography to motion pictures 1 400 Go to page with more prints from Muybridge s Animal Locomotion F Gilbert Edge The Sunday World Sept 20 New York circa 1890 19 x 12 woman with ticker tape 300 Go to page with more American Advertising posters Thomas Hicks Authors of the United States New York Thomas Hicks 1866 Engraving by A H Ritchie 19 3 8 x 34 1 2 Good margins Some old stains in margins Two repaired tears in left margin one extending ca 4 into image Else very good condition A superior engraving of the most famous American authors of the middle of the nineteenth century The image was drawn and published by Thomas Hicks a native of Bucks County who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy and National Academy of Design Around mid century Hicks set up a studio as a portrait painter in New York City and many prominent persons of the age sat for him This print is really a set piece showing off Hicks portraits It shows authors of the United States sitting and standing in a classical setting complete with statues of famous English writers including Shakespeare and Chaucer Statues on the upper balcony are of the founders of modern vernacular literate Goethe Shakespeare and Dante Each is clearly and accurately rendered and the whole makes a most impressive image This engraving was by A H Ritchie one of the best historic print engravers of the mid nineteenth century Ritchie is well known for the clarity and richness of his engravings and this is a fine example of his work 950 The Happy Days of Childhood New York J C Buttre 1871 18 3 4 x 13 1 2 image plus margins Lithograph hand colored Copyright by M V Wagilet Small blue dot above title and two small punctures under the dog Else excellent

  • Antique Historical Prints
    couplets perpetuate nicely the happy legend A charming piece of Philadelphia history that was prepared for distribution by newspaper carriers who sold them as a memento or gift at the beginning of the new year This is one of the most attractive and accomplished of these carriers broadsides that is a recognized genre produced in American cities in the nineteenth century 450 An American Interpretation of John Singleton Copley s The Death of Major Peirson Anonymous engraving after a painting by John Singleton Copley Defending the Flag No place or date given but style and printing technique suggests American done between 1855 and 1875 Etching 19 x 23 plate marks 26 1 4 x 32 full sheet Excellent condition This unusual print is a direct copy from John Singleton Copley s famous painting The Death of Major Peirson executed 1782 84 The original oil painting now in the Tate Gallery London celebrated an incident in the town square of St Helier on the Channel Isle of Jersey French forces had almost taken the town and island when a young Major Francis Peirson rallied the British forces counterattacked and drove the invaders off At the moment of victory the youthful officer was killed and this picture showed him being carried from the field amid the excitement and terror of battle An anonymous American engraver took the same image and transformed it into a patriotic statement by changing the Union Jack to the American colonial flag and entitling the print Defending the Flag Other more subtle changes were wrought by inscribing U S on the drum in the left foreground and removing the background statue of George III from under the tassel on the flag Otherwise most of the details remain significantly the vignette at the right showing the fleeing family for which Copley used his wife and son the gallant Negro covering the party carrying the dead hero and other troops gallantly fighting This print could have been created in the mid 1850s in response to attempts to generate patriotism by reminding the populace of the American Revolution during a time of regional strife building between the North and the South Similar images were also used after the Civil War to help bind the wounds and they continued well into the 1870s as Americans celebrated the centennial of the United States Printing style and paper size suggest a later date rather than an earlier one but we find no other documentation on this print and our forefathers in the prints business constantly amaze us with their products 650 Peter F Rothermel The United States Senate A D 1850 Philadelphia John M Butler and Alfred Long 1855 29 1 2 x 37 1 2 platemarks plus all margins Engraving by R Whitechurch Minor wear on side of Clay s face and the group of men directly behind him Small expertly repaired tears in the faces of the men just in front of Clay Otherwise incredibly good condition for a large separately issued
