Black cloth with gilt and red spine titles, dust jacket, 21 by 22 cm, x 277 pp., illus. Near fine hardcover but for a previous owner’s name in pen on the ffep; the jacket is very good with only faint edge wear and a tiny tear on the top edge of the rear panel. From the front flap: "For well over a century, New York has been a microcosm of the art and craft of American printmaking. Until 1825, printmaking in America was almost entirely an artisan’s craft. Then, with the arrival of lithography, the realization arose that printmaking could also be a fine art. The essays published in this collection contribute to the body of scholarship by identifying important but hitherto insufficiently studied aspects of the graphic arts and treating them authoritatively. Their subjects concern prints in New York State, whose great metropolitan city was, after 1825, the acknowledged center of nearly everything important in the graphic arts in the U.S." Dust jacket present.
