Here we have a vintage reproduction of an antique book plate.
This one is Velocipedes Huge 16x20 poster with 16 detailed etchings. Very creative old time bicycles on this one.

Condition:
This print some staining shown in picture 2 and 3. Water damage has been completely repaired. Awesome subject matter.

The print is archivially mounted and trimmed. Ready to be put into your own matte and frame.
Convo me with questions or if you don't see your favorite victorian industrial subject matter and I can check to see if I have what you like.

A Note About My Prints:
All prints came from a book published in 1972. The book was a large (16x20) paperback that was badly damaged. The spine was completely torn apart and all of the pages were water damaged. Even so, I couldn't believe it was in the recycle bin. You just don't discard this kind of subject matter. I was able to correct the water damage by mounting the prints with adhesive. Then I waited a couple days for the paper to adjust to it's new shape. The prints pulled away from the mount in most cases trying to get back to it's damaged state. Then I use an iron to heat the adhesive and remove the print from the mount. They are then remounted and all wrinkling disappears permanently. Staining is not too bad on the prints I have listed and when they are stained, it will be mentioned prominently above and shown in the pictures.

Prints with this wonderful old industrial revolution and victorian subject matter are so rare to begin with, and even more so in this huge 16x20 size I thought the best thing to do would be to repair and archivially mount the prints and then get them to etsy so many more people can enjoy their favorite subject matter. I know I'm loving the ones I kept for my personal collection, which are mostly early farming, something I've been interested in since I bought an 1812 dutch colonial farmhouse to restore.

Each page is archivially mounted using acid free adhesive and acid free matte board. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think these are the biggest book plates on etsy right now
