We're kicking off the fall season with vintage football artwork: a limited edition lithograph by Dong Kingman and an ink drawing for the Harvard Lampoon from the early 20th century. We also offer two 16th-century maps of European countries new to our inventory from the great Dutch cartographer Abraham Ortelius, including the Zeeland map sought after for the image of Triton riding a sea monster (shown here). For the bird lover, decorate the home with colorful early-19th-century toucan prints by Jacques Barraband for the walls, or a turn-of-the-century cast iron parrot doorstop for the floor or shelf.

Our current group of sale items are inspired by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's current exhibition, "Picturing Math," which shows how artists from the past 600 years "have engaged in the creation and communication of mathematical knowledge through the use and production of images." We've put a selection of prints and drawings on sale this month that combine art and mathematical concepts like geometry, perspective, and the measurement of time and space in cartography and navigation. Find our sale items and a link to more information about The Met's show at https://www.georgeglazer.com/news/features.html

In honor of International Women’s Day, today we’re featuring the botanical art of Sarah Ann Drake (1803-1857), a prolific British botanical illustrator. She was trained to create drawings from living plants by botanist and leading member of the Royal Horticultural Society John Lindley, and went on to illustrate a number of books by Lindley and others. This print of orchids is from Lindley’s “Sertum Orchidaceum.” In acknowledgement of her contribution to his work, Lindley named the genus Drakea for her.

NEW YORK PRE-1907: Bogue Laundry Soap issued this promotional colorful bird's-eye view of the Brooklyn Bridge. The vista takes in the Lower Manhattan buildings in the foreground and a portion of what was then the Manhattan entrance in the lower left. Along with that entrance structure are other buildings that no longer exist, such as the obelisk-like Tatham Shot Tower to the right of the bridge which was demolished in 1907. On the back advertising copy proclaims the soap "Shortens the Wash day and Makes Home Happy!"

This globe was made in Belgium between 1908 and 1914. The Upper Midwest of the United States, where tribes today are protesting the building of a pipeline in North Dakota, is labeled "Sioux Indiens." Another unusual, probably unique, feature of this globe is the inclusion of five illustrations representing different races by a portrait head and a caption noting where each is indigenous. #globe #antique #sioux #ethnographic https://www.georgeglazer.com/globes/table/windels.html
