Small Prints


J. Thomas Scharf, SmPr-PortraitsThe Small Prints collection consists over 3,000 advertisements, woodcuts, etchings, drawings, newspaper images, newspaper clippings, small booklets, and other items. Most date from the 18th and 19th century. The prints in this collection differ in size, but all are less than 10 x 15 inches.

The Small Prints collection is grouped into two sections: Portraits and Subject. At this point only the portraits have been fully inventoried – the prints arranged by subject are currently being inventoried.

The Portraits consist of nearly 1000 images of both Maryland and non-Maryland related figures including Francis Scott Key, John Eager Howard, William Paca, Edward Tilghman, Edgar Allen Poe, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Charles Calvert, and Napoleon Bonaparte. The prints are arranged alphabetically by last name.
