Look Mom, I’m Reading!
F. Stacpoole after R. Collinson, Absorbed in Robinson Crusoe. London & New York: Wm. Schaus, 1873.
An example of transatlantic printing, this 1873 mezzotint engraving was made in London and distributed in the United States. The enterprising publisher William Schaus had agreements with printers in England, Germany, and France to co-publish prints that he could then sell in New York at a profit. Adopt this print and dream of your own secluded tropical island (hopefully with a really good public library!).
