Description: Edwin Whitefield [1816-1892] was a landscape artist who is best known for his lithographed views of North American cities and for a number of illustrated books on colonial homes in New England. Born in Dorset, England, he emigrated to the United States in 1838. Offered here is an original lithograph of The Wells Mansion, Dorchester, Mass. Offered here are 19 original vintage unsigned, circa 1882, lithographs. Image 3 x 5 in. plus margins. Excellent condition. This house, built by Jos. Williams, son of Roger Williams, is situated near the Roger Williams Park. It is claimed to have been erected in 1622; and the glass in some of the upper windows is said to have been brought from England by Roger W. on his second visit there in 1662.
