Background:

The original alphabet prints shown on this page are from The Globe Alphabet, part of a Victorian children's reader published in England in the 1880s.

The prints introduce the young reader to the letters of the alphabet through scenes of animals, people, trade and landscapes from throughout the world.

Each print is provided with the accompanying poems for each of the letters.

The alphabet prints were produced through a chromolithographic process 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.
