Although Stevens book markers were introduced around 1862, matted Stevengraph pictures and
portraits were first shown to the general public at the York Exhibition on 7th. May 1879. By the year
1902, there were 66 different titles. Some 'Stevengraphs' predate the 1879 Exhibition but appear to be
Book Markers that had been matted and shown as silk pictures. These are extremely rare.
It should be noted that 'STEVENGRAPH' is the correct spelling and not "STEVENSGRAPH". Also, the
word "TEXTILOGRAPH" was used, especially in American advertising sheets but seems to have been
discontinued from use.
The numbers after each 'Stevengraph' picture or portrait title refer to the numbers given by Austin
Sprake in his book "The Price Guide to Stevengraphs" and the numbers after each 'Book Marker' refer
to the numbers given by Geoffrey Godden in his book "Stevengraphs and other Victorian Silk Pictures".
