Biographical Note:

Samuel Hollyer was born February 24, 1826, in London, England. At 14 he was apprenticed to Edward and William Finden, engravers, but after serving five of his seven years he was transferred to Henry Thomas Ryall's studio. He later worked for Ryall and other engravers. In 1850 he married Amy Smith and the following year they emigrated to New York. Mrs. Hollyer died in 1853 and he returned to England for what he thought would be a few months. However, he found his work in great demand and so remained for six years, marrying, in 1863, Madeline C. Chevalier.

After his permanent settlement in America in 1866, he lived for many years at Hudson Heights, near Guttenberg, New Jersey. During his more than seventy years of work, he engraved line and stipple portraits of most of the literary celebrities of his time, as well as landscapes, bookplates and vignettes for book-illustration.

In 1904 he published a series of etchings of historic buildings under the title Prints of Old New York. He died December 29, 1919.

Scope and Content Note:

The 159 black-and-white prints in this collection were engraved by Samuel Hollyer between 1901 and 1913 and are mainly exteriors of buildings. The images are of historically important sites, houses, taverns, churches, forts, entertainment venues and public buildings that were built in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. They are arranged in roughly alphabetical order.

The captions are from notes penciled on the sheets. The copyright dates, in parentheses at the end of the captions, are found on the prints.
