Print Sale

We are also offering an opportunity to buy original lithographic prints by renowned geologists John MacCulloch and Louis Agassiz. Images shown here are examples only, there will be many more available in the sale.

MacCulloch    We have a selection of 12 landscapes drawn by the Scottish geologist John MacCulloch. These beautiful black and white drawings, dating from 1819 - 1826, depict picturesque scenes of forests and cliffs as well as Scottish landmarks such as Dunkeld Bridge, Perthshire. 

These original lithographic plates, dating from the 1840s, are taken from a copy of Recherches sur les poissons fossiles by Louis Agassiz, who gained international recognition as the leading figure on fossil ichthyology during the 19th Century.
