  • About The Philadelphia Print Shop, Ltd.
    came to the antique print and map business by very different paths Don Cresswell had worked at the Library of Congress on its collection of Revolutionary War prints and was a college librarian before working as a cataloguer and salesman for Graham Arader Chris Lane was working on his Ph D thesis in Philosophy when he decided to take a hiatus to research and pursue his hobby of collecting antique maps and prints Chris and Don started their own business a year later in order to pursue their common interest in antique prints and maps From the beginning Don and Chris focused on providing an extensive collection of prints and maps of all kinds well researched and fairly priced They worked happily with institutions beginning and advanced collectors those interested in decoration for their home or office and those looking for an unusual gift In addition to its extensive website the Print Shop has issued informative catalogues on different topics including Americana natural history maps genre prints and fine art prints The staff has now grown to six from a business initially consisting solely of the two partners The Philadelphia Print Shop Ltd exhibits at many of the finest antiques shows around the country and Don and Chris have appeared as expert appraisers on the popular PBS television program The Antiques Road Show Chris having relocated to Colorado in 2010 the partners opened a branch there As of January 1 2015 Chris and Don amicably dissolved their partnership Don is now sole proprietor of The Philadelphia Print Shop and Chris operates his own business in Denver Inventory Our inventory encompasses a wide selection of original prints maps and books from the 15th through the 19th centuries These include woodcuts engravings and lithographs many with original hand coloring ranging in price

  • Philadelphia Print Shop Converts to Wind Power
    farms opened in October 2001 at Somerset and Mill Run Pennsylvania The Philadelphia Print Shop has recognized the environmental benefits of creating and supporting a renewable energy market Chris Lane remarked One of the lessons we have learned at the Philadelphia Print Shop through our involvement with history is that one cannot focus only on the present day but we must think about issues in a context of our past and our future Without question we need to be concerned with the prospect for our society in terms of the environment specially with reference to the use of non renewable energy sources We feel that long term benefits of helping to support the Pennsylvania wind power program far outweigh the relatively small present day costs Wind energy differs from coal or nuclear power in that it does not contribute to carbon dioxide contamination that plays a role in global warming Pennsylvania currently ranks third in the U S for carbon dioxide emissions Wind energy also has no dangerous byproducts or harmful emissions things that are common to coal and nuclear power Aside from its environmental benefits wind energy allows energy generation to be diversified and independent As a life long Chestnut Hill resident I am proud that The Philadelphia Print Shop is leading the local business community with this commitment to the environment says Joseph Otis Minott Executive Director of Clean Air Council which manages the Pennsylvania Wind Campaign The Campaign encourages businesses and residents statewide to purchase wind energy The environmental benefits of wind purchase are substantial Based on a 1 5MW turbine the environmental offsets include preventing over 1 million pounds of coal from being mined and more than 4 million pounds of carbon dioxide a major contributor to global warming and climate change from polluting our air
