Myers & Co - The Forgotten Licensees

Of those printing firms who took out a licence in the 1850s to use the Baxter process, the least known is the firm of Myers & Co.

Courtney Lewis in his book, "The Story of Picture Printing," supplies only a page of information about them.

The New Houses of Parliament - printed by Myers & Co

Undoubtedly, the main reason for this scarcity of knowledge, is that the firm produced so few colour prints by the Baxter process.

Less than a dozen subjects are recorded. Nevertheless, although Myers prints are few and rare, occasionally the collector may have the opportunity to acquire an example of their work.
