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
Hand colored lithograph from an 1836 issue of the "Magazine of Botany" published by Sir Joseph Paxton. Shown is Mr. Ford's Japan Camellia (Camellia Japonica Fordii). Paxton was a gardener, architect and Member of Parliament best known for his design of the Crystal Palace built for the London exhibition of 1851. Includes a certificate with additional information, and original page of accompanying text.
