    Since recently I have of a lithograph of Carl Schweninger. It's a photogravure (?) of 'The Lovers' (Innamorati), an oil painting by Carl Schweninger Jr. made in 1885.

    At the right bottom corner it says: "Copyright Published 1894 by S. Hildesheimer &Co. Ltd. Lonton & Manchester Printed in Austria"
    And in the top left: "Copyright 1894 by Fishel, Adler & Schwartz, New York"
    At the right bottom corner; "C. Scweninger Pinx".

    Some strange things are going on here. I know for a fact that the gravure is in my family for at least 100 years (by the way in The Netherlands) and photogravures have been made of ten of his oil paintings, of which some have been coloured.

    So my questions:
    1. How is it possible that one photogravure has two copyrights?
    2. How can I explain the spelling mistake in the name?
    3. Why does it say "Lonton" in stead of London?

    I have a print similar to this! Yours is in much better shape than mine. I also have questions about my print.
