Description

A copy of a lithographic print originally published by Currier and Ives, showing the Schooner Yacht Magic of the New York Yacht Club.

About the Print:
The text on the print says:The Schooner Yacht Magic of the New York Yacht Club. Franklin Osgood Esq. Owner and Commander. Winner of the great international yacht race for the Queen's cup at New York Aug. 8; 1870. Beating seventeen competitors including the English Yacht Cambria and the famous Yachts Dauntless; Idler; Fleetwing; Phantom; America and others.

This is a description of the first defence of America's Cup, when the trophy was still known as the Queen's Cup. The winning yacht Magic depicted here was originally launched in 1857 as the sloop Madgie. She was designed by R.F. Loper of Philadelphia and built by Byerly & Son in New York. Her rig was changed to a schooner and she was renamed Magic in 1859. She won the first defence of the America's cup in 1870, when she was thirteen years old.

About the original publishers:
Currier and Ives was a successful American printmaking firm headed by Nathaniel Currier (1813–1888) and James Merritt Ives (1824–1895). Based in New York City from 1834–1907, the prolific firm produced prints from paintings by fine artists as black and white lithographs that were hand colored. Lithographic prints could be reproduced quickly and purchased inexpensively, and the firm called itself "the Grand Central Depot for Cheap and Popular Prints" and advertised its lithographs as "colored engravings for the people."

Now available in two sizes
* 10" x 8", mounted ready to fit a 16" x 12" frame (metric frame equivalent 40cm x 30cm)
* about 18" x 12", unmounted.

All mounted prints have a backing board and are packed in a cello bag.

All sizes are available on a choice of papers, either satin photographic paper or heavy matt finish art paper.

Also available as a card - see this listing:

MOUNT SIZES
You have the option of mounts sized in either inches or cm. Please indicate your choice in a message when you buy. Be aware that mounts sized in inches may have different proportions to the equivalent in cm, so are not necessarily interchangeable. Please be sure to select the correct option for your needs. In the absence of a message I will supply a mount sized in inches.

The substitution will be made as below:

16" x 12" <=> 40cm x 30cm

The frame shown is for illustrative purposes only and is not included in the price. The mount will be antique white. You are buying the physical print only. Further rights to reproduction are not included.

Although a reproduction, this print is made with the same care and materials as my own work, printed on a Canon Pro 9500 Mark II printer with pigment based inks on archival quality paper.

FAQs

All the images I sell are public domain or otherwise out of copyright. However most incorporate significant work by me to restore and prepare them for printing. When you buy from me therefore you are only buying the physical print without any rights to further reproduction. If you want to use the images in other ways, for example in leaflets or promotional material, please contact me first.
You can resell the prints in the shop, including in a retail setting. However if you want to do this on any significant scale, it would be in your interest to contact me first, since I am happy to offer discounts on bulk orders.
You are at liberty to display prints from the shop in any location or venue. As with wholesale availability, if you want to do this on any significant scale, please get in touch and I will work with you to identify suitable images. I am happy to offer discounts on bulk orders.
Almost all the items in the shop are available in other sizes - just ask. I provide mounts sized to fit standard frames in either inches or cm. If you want a different mount size, again just ask.

I can also provide mounts with multiple images. I have some examples in the shop but any combination is possible - if it can be shipped I can make it.

Finally, if you have a particular image in mind, I have hundreds if not thousands waiting to be listed and acess to many other collections, so pleae let me know what you are looking for.
No. This business has a turnover that falls below the threshold required for registering for VAT in the UK. That doesn't mean however that these taxes are not applicable when shipping to another country. If you are purchasing from a country outside the EU that has its own sales tax, you may be charged these taxes before the package can be delivered. The level at which sales taxes kick in will vary from country to country. Any such charges for customs clearance/import duty are the customers responsibility.

So long as the UK remains in the EU no VAT is due on sales from this shop within the EU.

All shipments outside the EU are accompanied by a CN22 customs clearance form showing the full value of the goods (excluding shipping costs)
There is of course no such thing as free shipping. I could include the costs to me in the listed price, but many of my customers buy more than one item so would end up in the end paying more since I would no longer be able to refund any overpayment. I think it is fairer to you my customers not to bundle shipping costs into the price you pay.

I do not take a profit on shipping. The price you pay is the cost to me plus a flat charge for packaging materials, etc. This is currently around £2.00. I refund everything you pay above that unless the amount due is trivial.
