  • Shaw-Hill Picturesque Views of American Scenery
    He planned to travel throughout the United States to make his drawings and to issue the prints by subscription in six sets of six views each The aquatinting of the prints was done by John Hill 1770 1850 who was another Englishman who had just settled in Philadelphia This was Hill s first major American commission and the next year he moved to New York City where he further enhanced his reputation as the premier aquatinter in the country The publisher of the series Mathew Carey Son was no less illustrious than the others Mathew Carey was perhaps the dominate American publisher of the first two decades of the nineteenth century and the successor firms of Carey Son and then Carey Lea continued to play an important part in the history of American maps books and prints This series is seminal in the history of American prints the first time anyone tried to produce an overall artistic documentation of American scenery The scenes are mostly of the eastern seaboard ranging from New York to Georgia They show America when the country was primarily rural and they tend to focus on the inland waterways which were the major routes of travel and major sources of energy at the time These prints provide us with a precious snapshot of our land in its nascent age when it would still have been recognizable to the colonists of the previous century The prints are quite lovely beautifully rendered and exquisitely aquatinted Unfortunately the project was not a financial success and only eighteen of the intended thirty six prints were produced A second edition of the portfolio was issued by Thomas T Ash in 1835 the prints from that issue as rare as the first edition by Carey Son These rare prints provide us with
