Carman black grapes. Hedrick Grapes half-price lithograph c1908.

by Hedrick, U.P.

Beautiful bunch of grapes and foliage antique print.

Original fine colour-printed photolithograph for The United States Department of Agriculture's The Grapes of New York by horticulturist Ulysses Prentiss Hedrick (1870-1951). 

From 1905 to 1925, the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station published wonderful fruit lithographs to promote the growing of fruit crops in the United States. By the turn of the century  Hedrick continued the series, with illustrations in a larger format, over a period of 18 years, with six volumes on grapes, plums, cherries, peaches, pears and small fruits.

This is a beautiful image despite both left and right sides of the page illustrating only those parts of the leaves that fitted. Page size is 280 x 225mm (11.75 x 9.25 inches). Slight damage at the left edge of paper with 2 spots showing at the extreme edge of this picture (main damage is from where print was glued). Price generously reduced.
