The Art Treasures of England
The Master-Pieces of the Best English, Irish and Scottish Painters and Sculptors
Represented by over One Hundred Fine Steel Engravings with Biographical and Descriptive Text

Edited by J. Vernon Whittaker
Philadelphia, Gebbie & Barrie, Publishers, 1876

Original steel engravings over 130 years old

(Chine collé method: Chine refers to thin tissue paper, traditionally imported from China, Japan and India.
Collé refers to the glue or paste used to attach this thin tissue to heavier Western-made plate paper.
The smooth surface of the Oriental tissue papers accepts finer printing detail than the more coarsely textured plate papers.
Tissue papers are, however, quite weak. Pasting them to thicker paper gives them strength and stability.)

Sheet size: approximately 13 x 18 inches (approx. 32 x 46 cm).
Image size varies (noted below thumbnail image)
