How to use this site
In addition to the resized JPEG files available for web and research use (which can be zoomed in for viewing, we have also created PDF files of Revere’s images to be used for printing-purposes such as posters, projects, and worksheets. There is also a 240-300 ppi JPG image available for graphic designers and scholars to download as a place-holder for imagery or for researchers to examine Revere’s work in a higher-resolution.
For each image inventoried, you will find their titles (given or inferred), size of the original sheet, as well as indication if the item is bound, plate when visible, the approximate date and a link to the online catalog (when a catalog record exists). For interested researchers, this serves as a way into the AAS OPAC to see similar items in our holdings (for example, other merchants advertising cards from the eighteenth-century).
In order to help keyword search across the inventory, we have provided a Searchable PDF as well as a Thumbnail Gallery with reduced-sized images to view the contents of the entire inventory.
The Resources page lists other Revere collections, sites and bibliography of works and sources.
Revere’s prints fit into various subjects and can therefore be found under several headings. The Subject-Tag Browse feature of this site serves as a visual index for these images and is a tool for browsing. The tag cloud at the top shows an anchored list of the 31 headings.
Revere’s cuts in lead do not have separate catalog records in either the general AAS Online Catalog or the Catalog of Engravings (CAEP), subsequently there is no link provided. Instead we have supplied the Reilly number which corresponds to Elizabeth Carroll Reilly’s A Dictionary of Colonial American Printers’ Ornaments and Illustrations [click here for catalog record].
