Joseph Hoover


Before 1869: 804 Market Street
1869: 314 Walnut Street

Publisher of W. Boell’s  “Grant & Bonner – Dexter’s Best Time,” a most interesting print showing a view of our Bloomingdale Road, with the famous Dexter, who knocked the seconds down.

There is also a fine large group, earlier than the above, which seems to me to have the essential spirit of American lithography:  “President Lincoln and His Family,” n.d., large, folio. It has the very delightful subtitle, “Respectfully dedicated to the People of the United States.” This is really a very interesting Lincoln item. Of course there is no mention of artist or lithographer – just “Joseph Hoover Pub.”

He did considerable work of this type.
