What Our Customers Say...

Description

First Edition, Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding

Illustrated, with a frontispiece and fifteen colour plates in addition to thirty black and white illustrations. 

With the bookplate of noted art historian, Patricia Milne Henderson. Milne-Henderson was married to art historian and curator Michael Jaffe.

George Baxter was a British artist and printer based in London. He was one of the earliest people to experiment with colour printing through woodblocks. He also was the first to patent this inexpensive and commercially viable alternative to hand-coloured prints. 

This work looks at Baxter's life through his career. 

A very smart copy of this work.
