Lithographic Impressions of Sketches from Nature.  London: Rodwell and Martin, 1820-22.  6 folios with 6 plates each.  Frances Nicholson was among the first English artists to make use of the newly invented lithographic printing process.  Nicholson, called the "Father of Watercolor Painting" for his ability to produce a depth of tone and variety of shade and color in landscape painting, worked on these folios with Charles Hullmandel, also a watercolor painter, who first brought the lithographic process from Germany to England.
