This wonderful book is filled with 80 full-color prints from the original lithographs depicting the American life as illustrated by Currier and Ives. Printed by Crown Publishers, the color plates were in the collection of The Travelers Insurance Companies, most of which were originally used in the publication of the Companies’ annual calendar. The exterior of the book that measures 16” x 12”, shows that it was looked at over and over again, and the spine is a bit loose, but the prints are in excellent condition with wonderful color – our camera didn’t really capture the richness of each print. Even though this won’t make a decorative coffee table book, the prints are so endearing and can be enjoyed forever.
This would be a fabulous addition to your art book or Currier and Ives collection. Please contact us if you have any questions.
