Antiques Trade Gazette The UK source of information on auctions. Weekly newspaper, also large website

Dealers As well, we thought it might be helpful to list a few UK print dealers’ sites! Curiously, if you type ‘antique prints’ into Google, most of these long established print dealer sites do not even appear in the top fifty!!
