Thereare two examples of Ritter's early prints in the Collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Art in their Pennsylvania German Collection. Both are published and illustrated in the collection book of that museum, "The Pennsylvania German Collection" in the Philadelphia Museum of Art, pages 302-303. One is shown in the last photo.

From the above publication the following information on Ritter was found.

Johann Ritter was born in 1779 and died in 1857. He was the son of Francis Ritter and was a printer his whole life. He started a partnership with his uncle, Jacob Schneider from 1802-1804 in Reading, PA.and continued throughout the century from 1805-1851

Overall very good condition with only the slightest foxing and discoloration and a couple of very small lines as seen in the photos.
