Antique Engravings and Lithographs

This page contains links to our large selection of antique prints, largely 1800s engravings and lithographs of American historical subjects, including United States Presidents and Civil War scenes, but also including Winslow Homer wood engravings and a large inventory of birds, plants, American Indians and topographic views of the West from government survey reports published during the middle of the 1800s. Also in our collection are interesting caricatures of English and American subjects that appeared in Vanity Fair, many executed by Sir Leslie Ward as "Spy."  Below are pictures of examples of our antique engravings and lithographs and links to the rest.

There also are antique prints in the Law, Political Memorabilia  and Connecticut  sections of the web site.
