Six prints from the series "The Life of a Fireman." New York: N. Currier and Currier and Ives, [1854-1866]. Late 19th or early 20th century re-strikes. Large folio lithographs printed on wove brown tinted paper. Hand color. Large margins. Prints have been professionally conserved.

Louis Maurer was a German immigrant who produced some of Currier & Ives most enduring images. In 1854, Nathaniel Currier published four prints after Louis Maurer entitled "The Life of a Fireman." This series became immensely popular and two more prints were added to the series by two other artists after Maurer left the Currier firm. Eventually the entire series was republished by Currier in the 1880s with the publisher's name changed to "Currier and Ives" on five of the six prints.

These six prints are most likely re-strikes from the early 20th century, since the images are darker in appearance than the earlier impressions and the paper is not the type used by Currier and Ives. When the firm was liquidated in 1907 the old lithographic stones were sold and a few of the clipper ship prints were restruck and hand colored. Most likely another individual did the same for the "Life of a Fireman" series. Even though these are early 20th century hand colored restrikes it is unusual to find the complete set of six prints in such fine condition. For the set of six: $16,000
