Welcome to Prints with a Past. Since 1997 we have shared our love of original antique and vintage prints with our clients. The business grew out of our enjoyment in antiquing while living in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and collecting prints for our home and to give as gifts. We take great pride in presenting a diverse selection of original engravings and lithographs from the late 1700s through early 1900s, and sharing the story about each one. —Your hosts, Nancy and Dick Bossler.
Why we love this
Original hand-colored engraving from a 1780s folio on English insects. Shown are a variety of flies (Diptera Muscae), including wing detail. Based on an illustration by the English entomologist Moses Harris (1730-1788), who was also the engraver and author for this series. Displayed in a conservation mat ready for framing. Image, 7"L x 9"H; overall, 14"L x 16"H. Includes a certificate with additional information, and copy of accompanying text pages.
