We are offering a
selection from one of the first works of early American
chromolithography. "The Fruits of America" was
published in 1852 by Hovey and Co., Boston, and was
originally issued in parts from 1847 to 1856.
Hovey was a nurseryman of Cambridge, Massachusetts,
and a leading writer on horticultural topics. The
author describes the work in terms of national prestige:
"There is a national pride, too, which I feel in the
publication of a work like this; and that is, that the
delicious fruits which have been produced in our own
country, many of them surpassed by none of foreign
growth, will be here beautifully depicted."
These prints, which are in
excellent condition, are on a strong wove paper,
measuring approximately 7 inches wide by 10 1/2
inches long. On some, there may be some slight
foxing and spotting. A copy of the title page and the original text
accompanies each print.
