Three of the most important reference works on nineteenth century lithography, in a very affordable format (the original volumes would reach a few thousand dollars). Originally published in 1929, 1931, and 1935, these volumes form a necessary set for any study of stone lithography. The two volumes on Currier & Ives prints include a checklist of all known prints. America on Stone is a chronicle of American lithography other than that of Currier & Ives from its beginning shortly before 1820 and includes an alphabetical list of the artists, lithographers, and publishers. The final volume covers lithography in California as a specialized topic and includes an alphabetical listing of artists, lithographers, and publishers. Included is a detailed subject index.
