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.
