Book review: Thorburn’s relationship with the Printsellers Association and the Fine Art Trade Guild

A Review by John Hughes (Honorary member of the Fine Art Trade Guild.

This book offers a unique insight into an extensive collection of prints and proofs produced by Archibald Thorburn (1860-1935). Not only will the book undoubtedly appeal to Thorburn collectors and those generally interested in countrywide pursuits and wildlife but it also shows the advantage of research for those members of the Guild who deal in, no matter how occasionally, secondary embossed editions. The quality of the prints produced during Thorburn’s prolific career is astounding and is an excellent demonstration of what could be achieved by the very skilled, but manual techniques and printing processes around the turn of the century. The Printseller’s Association, and later, the Fine Art Trade Guild had a strong connection with Thorburn and their archives have provided invaluable information for this publication.
