Frequently Asked Questions
Are those odd lines on the image a defect in the print?
Antique prints often have faint vertical or
horizontal lines visible. Rather than a defect, they are a fascinating
historical artifact of the popular engraving process employed by
newspapers at the time of the Civil War? During
the war, newspaper publishers needed a method where they could get the
illustrations produced by newspaper artists in the battlefield to the American
public as quickly as possible. To do this, the illustration was divided into
sections usually two inches square. Double page prints were divided into as many
as 40 sections. The section was traced onto a wood block. Engravers cut into the
wood with various tools creating a mirror image of their section of the
illustration. The blocks were then screwed together, recreating the original
illustration. This would then be inked and stamped onto the newsprint. The lines
on the image above are a result of where the blocks of wood were joined together.
See "Wood Engraving."
Will my antique print deteriorate?
Before 1870, newspapers were not made from
wood pulp as they are today. Instead, they were printed on a sturdy paper made
by pulping linen rags. These rags came from clothing and ship sails. Because
this kind of paper contains very little acid, your antique print could easily
retain its appearance for many years into the future, if handled properly.
"How to Preserve Your Antique Print."
Why do people purchase antique prints and maps?
Antique prints and maps portray a moment in history. Because they represent a
broad range of subjects, they are particularly useful when looking for a unique
gift. Interior design has become a huge market for antique prints. From small
framed botanicals to large Civil War maps, from large framed old city views to a
collection of framed Harper's satirical cartoons, antique prints provide a world
of design possibility. If properly framed, antique prints and maps can be
preserved for many decades.
