News-Antique.com - Jun 29,2009 - REHOBOTH BEACH, DE, June 29, 2009—Antique Prints, Inc. of Ocean View, Delaware will bring a number of rare and unusual items to the All Saints’ Antiques Show in Rehoboth Beach next month. Those items include early Delaware maps and notable images of Abraham Lincoln.
“We are lucky to have some very early maps of Delaware that depict the eastern shore,” Print specialist Brandon Case comments. “We’ll also be bringing some prints that depict early life and times in Delaware.”
Case also says some of the earliest images of the Chesapeake Bay dating to the 17th Century will be shown and available at the Rehoboth Beach show.
“John Smith arrived in 1606 and produced his own maps in 1612. One of the maps we have was made in 1633 based on Smith’s map,” Case says.
This, the year of Abraham Lincoln’s 200th Birthday, brings another item into the forefront of Antique Prints, Inc’s booth— prints of the 16th President made from original glass negatives. Case says the photographs were taken by M.P. Rice, who worked for the preeminent Washington photographer Alexander Gardner.
Antique Prints, Inc. is a second-generation business in Ocean View. Notable customers include former First Lady Laura Bush. Antique Prints, Inc. can be found on the web at www.antiqueprintsinc.com.
