Special Collections


This collection consists of 18th and 19th-century engraved and lithographic prints depicting American and European historical events, rural and urban landscapes, landmarks, and prominent persons as well as allegorical, religious, satirical and genre scenes. The collection contains illustrations derived from period publications, those issued as affordable art works by period printers (often reproduced from an original painting or sketch), and those issued as commemoratives or decorative certificates.
