Linton- Life in the Collections
23) The Aldine, A Typographic Art Journal. Volume V.
New York 1873
“In 1872 The Aldine Press (...) developed into The Aldine, The Art Journal of America. The early numbers may be spoken of as tentative (..) and the importion of French and German engravings was certainly useful for educational comparison.” (Linton, The History of Wood Engraving in America)
This volume contains two engravings, which Linton counted among his very best: The Pines of the Racquette after John A. Hows (p. 121) and Blood Money after Victor Nehlig (p. 191). It also includes a very early engraving by Frederic Juengling, an engraver from Leipzig / Germany, who would later become the most radical exponent of the New School, Linton´s chief opponent.
