From The Aldine.

New York. Wood engravings. 9 x 12 3/4. Very good condition.

The Aldine. An American Art Journal (1868-79), was started as a house organ for a New York firm of printers, but became a general magazine devoted to art and typography under the editorship of R.H. Stoddard (1871-75). It was filled with wood engravings based on art by some of the best American artists of the day, including most famously Thomas Moran, after whose work thirty-nine prints were made. Many of these, and images by other artists, featured American western landscape, increasing the awareness among the public of the beauty of this region.

Lake George Andrew W. Melrose. "Lake George." [Sabbath Day Point/Roger's Slide]. Washington: A. Melrose, ca. 1885. 21 1/2 x 35 1/2. Chromolithograph by Raphael Tuck and Sons. Margins trimmed to image as issued. Vibrant colors. Very good to excellent condition.

Andrew Melrose (1836-1901) was an artist of American landscapes who had studios in Hoboken and Guttenburg, New Jersey during the 1870s and 1880s. Particularly known for his paintings of views from North Carolina to New England, he also produced images of Ireland, the Tyrols and Cornwall. This lovely and colorful Adirondack scene shows the area of Sabbath Day Point, near the present day town of Hague, New York. The view is looking north; in the background, on the left is Roger's Slide. In the foreground, is a cabin with people unloading provisions on the shore, and in the middle distance a flat bottom boat is ferrying people across the lake. Melrose published a number of large chromolithographs after his paintings. Many artists tried selling these large and colorful prints to make extra money and to help establish their reputations. This is an excellent example of 19th century chromolithography used to reproduce American paintings. $2,400
