Prints after John B. Bachelder. From Album of New England Scenery. New York: J.B. Bachelder, 1856. Folio: images ca. 10 x 15 3/4. Lithographs by Endicott & Co. Two tone lithographs. Fine condition.

A rare series of attractive views of New England by John Badger Bachelder (1825-1894). This series of twenty two-toned lithographs was issued in 1856. John Bachelder, well known for his historical images of the Civil War, was also a fine landscape painter. He made his drawings on-the-spot, usually from an elevated vantage point just outside of the towns. Bachelder was concerned to present as accurate a picture of his subjects as was possible and his images are both precise and detailed. These prints thus present us with accurate images of these New England towns near the middle of the nineteenth century. The compositions, lithography and fascinating historical detail combine to make these most desirable prints.
