Scope note
Color prints made using a combination printing process involving an intaglio, or occasionally lithographic, key plate which prints the image, after which color is superimposed on the print using wood blocks. The process was patented by an Englishman, George Baxter, in 1835, and was very popular up into the 1870s. The term is sometimes used to refer exclusively to prints made by Baxter himself; Baxter-process prints is a term used to describe prints of the same process made by other printers.
