72. Shadwell, Wendy. “Prized Prints: Rare American Prints Before 1860 in the Collection of The New-York Historical Society.” Vol. 11, no. 1 (Spring 1986), 1-27.

This is the catalog for an exhibition mounted at The New-York Historical Society in conjunction with the 1986 North American Print Conference. Shadwell’s criterion for inclusion in this exhibition is rarity–prints known by fewer than three or four impressions. Thirty-eight prints are described in superb detail and almost all are reproduced. Among the rarest of the prints are several lithographs printed in New York in 1821 and 1822.
