We are pleased to offer prints from this volume of the fruits of that time from the comprehensive work on the Agriculture of New York, published in Albany New York in 1851. The prints are hand colored lithographs of apples, pears, plums, cherries and peaches. They are in excellent condition, with the paper still quite white and no foxing at all. Each print measures approximately 9 inches wide by 11 inches long. There is a copy of the chapter associated with each fruit, as there were no single descriptive texts with this work. Please review the photos carefully as they are very accurate. The prints are original antique prints guaranteed to be the stated age of over 150 years old.

Ebenezer Emmons (1799-1863) was a physician and natural history professor. Geology was his first love, and he named the Adirondacks & Taconic Mountains. His masterpiece was "American Geology" a work describing American fossils. He also contributed to The Natural History of New York, with three volumes on fruits, vegetables & insects. In later life he was State Geologist of North Carolina.

These old prints are a valuable record of the many wonderful heirloom fruit varieties that have disappeared in the past century. Just imagine that there were once about 10,000 varieties of apples alone in the US & now 15 varieties only account for more than 95% of US production!
