Historic Overview

The book was part of a series called Britain in Pictures.

This plate is Dog Rose, taken from a colored engraving by A. Parsons 1847-1920 from E. Willmott’s book, The Genus Rosa. The print is professionally matted in an 8” x 10” burgundy colored matte to setoff the beauty of the image. Our vintage prints are shipped in a plastic sleeve between cardboard stiffeners to arrive in perfect condition.

Keep in mind, an antique print will never be “mint” like a new print and there are sometimes tiny occasional spots and/or discoloring or aging. However, we will not sell anything that we would not be proud to hang on our own walls!!!
