Rona Schneider Fine Prints
There is an extensive literature on American print-making artists which covers the century from 1850 to 1950 on which my collection is focused.

The following list of publications is quite useful for the period from 1850 to 1900, the literature for this period being relatively small. The 20th century literature is voluminous; I have made a selection which should prove useful in learning more about many of the prints in my inventory.

Some of these books are available through publishers, specialized booksellers, used book dealers and museums. Many are rather scarce, but can be found in research libraries. I have a few for sale; prices have been noted on those.
