Interesting and amusing, artistic and beautiful, Antique Secrets is delighted to present a fine selection of antiquarian books and prints for sale. Many of Antique Secrets’ prints tell a political or historical story from a time when many people were illiterate. By presenting relevant stories of the day in a humoured and pictorially easy to understand manner, artist like Hogarth became household names. Many years later the work of satirists such as James Gillray and William Hogarth, who drew such exquisite caricatures, is sought after by collectors and interior designers to hang graciously in studies and sitting rooms throughout the world.
Antique Secrets is delighted to offer a selection of prints covering subjects as diverse as political satire and neolithic stone circles.
Where possible, we offer complete books too, many containing deliciously executed selections of prints that tell the tale of an old England and old world.
Antique Secrets is delighted to offer a selection of books dating from the annals of publication into the 21st century.
