frequently  asked  questions

Dollar and Euro pricesYou say  “email for these prices” - does this mean they are higher?  No, we only charge a small extra amount for postage and packing. We will charge you in Dollars or Euros at today’s current exchange rate. You can find this from many sites, for example X-RATES.COM . (This link will open in a separate window, close to return to our site.)

how often  should I visit your website?  We try to put up some new material every couple of weeks or so. But prints do not move all that fast, so probably no more frequently than once a month. If you have a specific interest, many of our sales are not from the website anyway, so best to email us with your inquiry.  

what is that funny background to your website? It looks like a bit of dirty old paper?  You’re right!  It is!  Except that it’s a piece of Eighteenth Century paper. We just scanned an area of the back of a print, and ‘tiled’ it. You can see a corner of the platemark repeated. If you look at the site with a low resolution browser, it probably does look like a piece of dirty old paper !!

why are prints on some web sites and on sites like eBay so cheap?  I see lots of topographic prints on at 5 to 10? We think you will find that these are very small, later prints. Through the late C18 and especially the C19, books with scores if not hundreds of small prints were produced. Many are small ‘steel engravings’, which were printed in vast numbers - so they are still cheap. Also, a lot of the prints you see are later copies, or just downright fakes, like photocopies. We only sell the general article!
