Period Paper is pleased to offer a fascinating collection of charming lithographs and halftone prints which commemorate some of the most interesting global events that occurred during the late 1800s. Not only are the quality of these prints superb when compared to other of their ilk, some of these pieces come from the works of famous artists such as Frederic Remington and Charles Dana Gibson. From the coronation of Tsar Nicholas II in Russia to the Spanish-American War that rocked the continent of North America, and the Golden Jubilee of England's Queen Victoria, these images capture moments that today's world has most certainly forgotten. Any of these pieces would make a fine addition to the avid historian's collection.
