Book Review: Boston Lithography

The book is subtitled The Boston Athenaeum Collection, and presents 128 prints, about half black and white and half color. It features Boston lithographers, so while many represent images of Boston, it also includes portraits, sheet music covers and scenes from other communities. It opens with a text section that discusses the development and growth of the industry, and ends with a reference section on the various firms and artists. Some of the Boston-specific prints are already available online, but it's nice to have them in hand.
