Ovingham Church, after Edward Swinburne and printed in oil-colours by George Baxter and laid down, a tear in the head margin
of the latter's mounting paper having been neatly repaired. Contemporary full brown morocco, sides bordered in gilt and
blind, backstrip lettered and tooled direct in gilt, a small piece of leather missing from the tail, inner hinges repaired
with japanese paper, all edges gilt. Author's presentation inscription, dated 10th July 1839, on the front fly-leaf to

143) Although Chatto's contribution to this work is not acknowledged on the title there are two prefaces, each signed
by one or other of the authors, this lack of acknowledgement on the title lead Chatto to issue of pamphlet in which he claimed
to be the 'author of the first seven chapters of the work...' This was the first major historical and practical treatise
on wood-engraving and the technical aspects of the work remains today as the most detailed technical description of the whole
craft of nineteenth century engraving. As well as describing the traditional processes in great detail, the text is sufficiently
forward looking to discuss adapting traditional engraving technique to take account of the rigours of early machine printing
of wood-blocks. Early methods of metallic relief engraving, such as the processes of Lizars, Hancock, Wone, and Collins are
also touched on. £185.00

Houten: Hes & De Graaf, 2012. 4to, (297x210mm), 672p 220 colour & 83 monochrome illustrations. Hardback. (NEW BOOK)
This book surveys the history of the techniques of engraving, etching and plate printing – i.e. that of manual intaglio
printmaking processes – from its beginning in the 1430s until today. These developments are observed in the light of
the coherence between the technique of the intaglio print (i.e. its materials and methods of production); the ‘style’
or outward appearance of the print; the creator of the print; and the fashion typical of a particular social group, place
and time. Economic, educational and social aspects are discussed, as well as the dissemination of the trade of intaglio printmaking
world-wide. The author shows how intaglio printmaking developed steadily from the mid-fifteenth century, with the invention
of the roller press and the etching of printing plates. By 1525 intaglio printmaking techniques could be said to have reached
maturity and spread east and west following the European trade routes and colonisation. Further developments in plate-making
were caused by a series of inventions and re-inventions. After the abolition of the guilds on the European continent around
1800, and the introduction of photography and the expansion of the graphic industry, the engraving of images became a mere
mechanical procedure. The handcrafted print made way for the large-scale mechanised graphic industry which emerged in the
middle of the nineteenth century. Consequently artist-etchers withdrew to an elite position to concentrate on the manual aspects
of printmaking, which is the situation today. This comprehensively illustrated study is the first of its kind to cover all
elements of the trade of engraving and etching throughout six centuries. Based on an exhaustive number of primary sources
it will be an essential resource for collectors, curators, conservators, printmakers and students of technical art history.
