Lehnert & Landrock Photogravures

Adirondack Retro is pleased to offer one of the world's largest collections of Original and Authentic Lehnert & Landrock Photogravures (Heliogravures) from 1900-1930s of iconic scenes of natives and locales in Northern Africa: Tripoli, Algeria, Tunisia, and Morocco for the most part. These authentic Photogravures (sometimes referred to as photo lithographs or photo engravings) measure approx. 9.5 by 12 inches (23 x 30 cm) and are graded [ VG+ ]. They are generally sepia-toned, but many have been colored by a seemingly hand-tinted photo process. Several larger desert panorama scenes are also available, measuring approx. 12 x 23 inches (30 x 60 cm.). The photographs were taken by Lehnert and Landrock in Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Spain (the Alhambra). Unfortunately, we do not have specific identifiers for each photo except for the Alhambra photos.

Though many of the original glass plate negatives were rediscovered in 1982, it is believed that the glass printing plates for the amazing images in our collection were destroyed during the American & British bombardment of Germany in World War II, meaning that the only place that you can get these gravures from this collection is here at Adirondack Retro.

Adirondack Retro guarantees that all of our Antique and Vintage Prints & Ads are authentic from the year stated. We offer our Original Antique Prints and our Premium Giclee Reproduction Prints with the option to include archival matting and framing with your purchase.
