"Ramapo River" Woodcut 1874
Print ID: 30400


From "Picturesque America" William Cullen Bryant

Bucolic scene of the Ramapo River in the Ramapo Valley on the boundries of New Jersey and New York State. This scene would probably be obscured by the New York State Thruway now!

Post Civil War, Americans were naive and somewhat ignorant of the beauties of their own country. Bryant felt that a book describing the scenery of America would help enlighten his countrymen and so "Picturesque America" was born. Historians credit "Picturesque America" with helping start a boom in domestic travel.

4to., 12 1/4" x 8 7/8" overall measurement, woodcut, uncolored, left margin slightly rumpled with one 1/8" expertly closed tear not affecting image (all faults will mat out) otherwise very good condition. *Please Note* This image is digitally watermarked, but the electronic watermark does not appear on the actual print.

Guaranteed authentic original antique print. Certificate of authenticity available at no extra charge upon request.
