Antique Prints of
Twickenham & Environs
This is a comprehensive collection, including prints of all sorts of shapes, sizes, rarity and prices. Acquiring a collection like this is completely out of our control, and in the space of a couple of months, these have come from several different sources, all by chance.
The prints are listed by artist, engraver or publisher. Sizes are in centimetres, height first, either the plate size or the image size. They are black & white unless stated otherwise. Any faults are described. Many of them are in frames, probably not to your taste, so the prints are priced ignoring any values of the frames so if you buy a print you can have the frame if you want it. Any print can be sent on approval without the frame, subject to remaining unsold.
