16th-19th Century Prints

This is a general selection of early prints.  You can also find early caricatures here and early topographical and architectural prints here.

 

Please note:

 

Those marked with *VM are not currently physically mounted. We have suggested a suitable colour, but we will mount in a colour to suit you (within reason!). Please use our order/enquire form to request this and for any other queries.

 

The photos are not proportionately sized, so please check the measurements given. 

Mount colour is as accurate as possible, but of course may show up differently on different computers.

 

Picture size is approximate, though overall mount size is pretty accurate. 

Any noticeable marks or creases are noted in the description.

All hand colouring is contemporary with the time the print was made.
