Background:

These unique Country Alphabet prints are from an 1870s children's picture book published by Frederick Warne and Company of London.  Warne was also the publisher of Beatrix Potter's series of children's books.

The alphabet prints used country scenes to teach children the ABCs.

The chromolithographs were produced by the English printing firm Kronheim and Company, founded by Joseph Kronheim (1810-1896).   Kronheim came to England from Germany in the mid-1830s settling first in Edinburgh as an engraver and lithographer.  He then moved to London and started his own printing business in the mid-1840s.

The alphabet prints are conservation matted to fit a standard 11 x 14 inch frame size.  The mat includes two openings - for the print and the accompanying verse.  See an example of the matted print at the end of this page.
