|Author: William H./ Hewitt Scheuerle|
From the Publisher:
George Baxter (1804-1867) was the first English printer to bring together satisfactorily color printing from metal plates and wood blocks. His approximately 400 color prints are a reflection of the Victorian culture and many of its main values, especially those of the rising middle class that grew so importantly and expansively in England in the 19th century.
