Discovering Antique Prints by Ronald Russell

Aylesbury, Shire Publications, 1989 (Discovering series no. 266)
88 pages. B/w photographic plates and drawings.

Publisher's blurb: "For centuries prints were the only means of conveying information pictorially to the public. From prints people learned what places were like, about natural history, architecture, costumes, transport, battles. They were the means of illustrating books: through a variety of techniques they provided knowledge and decoration. Now that photography has taken over nearly all of their functions, prints have become collectors' items. This book helps to distinguish the various types of prints, tells you about their history and development and shows you something of their range and variety. It is an introduction to a fascinating pictorial world in which art, craftsmanship and technologyall combine."

Series Note:
This very popular series of well researched and illustrated guides was published in England from the late 1960s.
