Philadelphia on Stone is the first work in over fifty years to examine the history of nineteenth-century commercial lithography in Philadelphia. The heavily illustrated volume of thematic essays provides an analysis of the social, economic, and technological changes in the local trade from 1828 to 1878; biographies of premier lithographers P. S. Duval and James Queen; and new insights about genres of lithographs pertaining to book illustration, advertising, sensational news, and landscape imagery.Illustrated with more than 130 full-color images, the text appeals to the local historian; those studying visual and popular culture, advertising, and economic history; and scholars of printing history. The depicted advertisements, cityscape and bird s-eye views, disaster prints, and zoological illustrations document Philadelphia while showcasing the work of Philadelphia lithographers. Philadelphia on Stone brings to life the skill, finesse, and allure of this process that radically altered the visual landscape of Philadelphia and the country.Aside from the editor, the contributors include Jennifer Ambrose, Donald H. Cresswell, Sara W. Duke, Christopher W. Lane, Michael Twyman, Dell Upton, and Sarah J. Weatherwax.
