[Travelling salesman's stock book]
Album of 102 engravings, 185 x 345mm (7¼ x 13¼"). Unique and rare
A collection of 102 engravings and lithographs, including many billheads and letterheads, probably compiled for use as a stock book by a travelling salesman. The engravings are datable to around 1839-51. The album includes thirty-seven topographical engravings published by John Newman (1813?-1896), and several by Manchester based engravers including George Bradshaw and F. Shields. The majority are topographical in subject, with several relating to the Great Exhibition, although other decorative subjects are also represented.
