"Specimen" is engraved on the cover of this old book I found. This contained 10 stone lithographic plates of all the Minerals discovered by that date in Europe, with graphic images of mining life done with wood engravings.
MINES AND MINERS; or UNDERGROUND LIFE. 1869. Translated and edited from the French by H.W.BRISTOW, F.R.S
The plates have become very faded and foxed so I decided to recreate the original 10 lithographic plates in watercolour, following the original layout and brightening the colours.
The original watercolour plates I have painted are in my possession, and I have had expert photography and printing of these, to ensure that a limited number of 10 sets of Prints, each set has 10 prints are for sale. I have 7 Sets available to date. Set costs €600.
