A set of two vintage reproductions of angling and shooting by Richard Blome, who was among the most active publishers of cartographic and illustrated books in late 17th- and early 18th-century London. He was the first publisher in England for 40 years to prepare a new folio world atlas, the first in over 60 years to publish a new set of folio county maps, the first to seriously plan an illustrated description of London, and the first to plan a series of volumes related to the various world continents. Not only was his output varied in terms of subject and quality, but his career also gives instructive insight into the nature and activities of the London map and print trade of the period.
William Stafford Gallery has a sterling reputation for its reproduction prints. The London-based gallery is a treasure trove of fine-art prints, contemporary black-and-white photography, sepia photography, and works in color. By commissioning artists and photographers and then controlling all aspects of print production, the gallery ensures a consistently exceptional quality. Through collaborations with master framemakers, it offers new and refreshing presentation ideas in pace with today's design trends.
