Each print measures approximately 8

We are pleased to offer these high quality hand
colored engravings from the Rees Cyclopedia. The early
years of the nineteenth century saw a flowering of
encyclopedias publishing in Britain, Europe and America.
Rees's Cyclopaedia, one of several published around this
time, contains fascinating information about every
aspect of life including the industrial and scientific
revolutions of the time. The work is particularly
distinguished by the beautiful quality of the
engravings, done by engravers such as Wilson Lowry &
John Farey, Jr. Encyclopedias were published in
Scotland, as a result of the Scottish Enlightenment, for
education there was of a higher standard than in the
rest of Britain.
Many of these prints are exceedingly decorative, as
well as informative, and they have been beautifully hand
colored for us in England by one of the most talented
colorist of fish, shell, and mammal prints.
Each print measures approximately 8 1/2 inches by 10
inches, on thick, white paper with no foxing. There is
no title page or text, as we purchased these authentic,
antique prints as a collection of plates.
