1965 Complete Gallery of the American Automobile Lithograph Set by Clarence P. Hornung - 100 Colored Lithographs
Complete Gallery of the American Automobile set by Clarence P. Hornung was printed in 1965. This boxed set contains 100 lithographs of historic American automobiles. Hornung began his auto illustrations in 1949, after he learned that there was no pictorial history of American cars. Hornung was nicknamed "The Audubon of the Automobile".
The colored lithographs illustrate the development of the automobile in the United States from 1853 to 1915 from the 1853 Dudgeon Steam Wagon through the 1915 Locomobile Town Coupe. Each vehicle is lavishly reproduced as a color screenprint on an individual 14" x 24" sheet of heavy art paper, with a separate explanatory caption provided by James J. Bradley - then the head of the Automotive History Collection at the Detroit Public Library.
The lithographs are housed in a substantial blue cloth solander box with gilt embossing along the spine. The box also contains an index of all of the cars (see photos) and other supplementary information.
