Pears' Chromolithographs

Pears' Chromolithographs

The lithographs in this catalogue were sold with Pears' Annual, a yearly volume of fiction accompanied by up to four high-quality lithographs ready to frame. The annual was sold for one shilling, placing fine art within the reach of people who would never otherwise have been able to afford it. These chromolithographs required a separate block for each color in a lengthy process that resulted in incredibly rich images. We have added an extra lithograph from the Detroit Publishing Company that matches the spirit of Pears'.
