Description
This colored print depicts a large genealogical tree depicting the early history of the world, with a table showing the lineage of the Biblical patriarchs, from the creation of Adam to the Deluge. “Antediluvian” means “before the flood” and refers to the period before the Deluge as described in Genesis 6:11-9.19 of the Bible.
This print was produced by Endicott and Company, the successor to the New York firm of Geo. & Wm. Endicott Lithographers. George (1802-1848) and William Endicott (1816-1851) were born in Canton, Massachusetts. George Endicott began working as a lithographer in New York in 1828. He partnered with Moses Swett in the company Endicott & Swett from 1830 to 1834. William Endicott joined the company in 1841. Following George Endicott's death in 1848, the firm continued operating as William Endicott & Co. Francis Endicott (born ca. 1834) worked at the company from 1852 to 1886, and George Endicott, Jr. ran the firm from 1887 to 1891.
