Linton- Life in the Collections

William James Linton / Nancy Carlson Schrock ed.:

40) American Wood Engraving, a Victorian History by William James Linton, New York, 1882.

Reprint: New York 1975

Because of the moderate reproduction quality, this reprint of Linton’s History of American Wood Engraving is not really recommendable. But it contains a valuable scholarly introduction to Linton’s efforts in the development and the promotion of the craft, written by Nancy Carlson Schrock, a librarian and art historian experienced in book restoration and binding.
