Giovanni Battista Ferrari
Antique Prints

Since 1763 the name 'Russborough' has been synonymous with collecting and dealing in fine art. In the closing decades of the last century the historic town of Port Hope has become home to Lord Russborough's Annex, which specialises in an individual mix of antique maps, paintings and prints.

While Lord Russborough's Annex features a great many works of museum calibre, we also offer a wonderful selection of prints priced at under $100.


Giovanni Battista Ferrari
(1582 or 1584 -1655) was an Italian Jesuit scholar with a keen interest in taxonomy and classification of fruit. A native of Sienna, he removed to Rome where he was appointed chair of Hebraic studies at the Collegio Romano, a position he held for 28 years allowing him to give full reign to his thoughts and studies as a man of letters.
