ISO: W.T. Littig Printing Co.

Via the contact form:

I ran into this website while researching prints by W.T. Littig, a printing Co. In Brooklyn, NY in the early 20th century. I recently acquired several prints that are not colleges along with copper plates and prints from the Andersen-Lamb Printing Co. I am looking for a connection between the two companies other than the address. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Rick Seip

  1. Hello,
    I am wondering if you ever found information on Andersen-Lamb. I am researching that workshop as part of my Ph.D. dissertation but can not locate any information. They printed a significant portfolio in 1958 called “21 Etchings and Poems.”
    Would you be willing to share information about the plates and prints you acquired?
    With kind regards,
    Jennifer

    I can give you a lot of info about the company as I was there when we met Mrs Edna Andersen and spent three days at the handprinting and photogravure facility when we negotiated to buy it the company and then privately purchase the photogravure etching engraving mezzotaints plates etc from the family.
    We were tyhe finest hamdprinters in the world for over 50 years and I was there when we did the Paul Revere plate for the Boston centennial.
    I am living in Indonesia on Baqli Island and still have nsome of the last pulls we made and two or three master plates, one by Stephen Parrish.
    He was father and teacher of Maxfield.
    I also have some Norma morgan hand colored photogravure and a few master plates.

  6. Hello,
    I have a few of the etchings from that project, you could veiw them on eBay right now. I do not have these printing plates however we have many other prints and plates that were left in storage by Andersen Lamb. I’ll be happy to help you in any way possible however after 3 years of researching this company, I still have more questions than answers.
    Regards,
    Rick

    Andersen Lamb was created when the old Brooklyn Photogravure co. went broke.
    Both andersen and lamb worked there.
    They bought five star presses a french-made hand crank press with as giant 69 in × 28 in plate size and a bunch of the best plates and other equipment.

    Mr. Cardinale wrote to me privately and offered some details his employment at Andersen Lamb. I am hoping to shape his recollections into an article. Stay tuned.

  13. Does anyone know how many aerial views Richard rummell made for the littig Co?

  14. We have a number of letters in our collection detailing the creation and sale of an aerial view of the then Otterbein College (now University) in Westerville, Ohio. Anyone aware of a list of employees of Littig (ca 1916)? Manager’s name might be W. W. Barber, but would like confirmation for our finding aid. . . .
