Library Photographic Reproductions Price List

All requests for copies of photographs in The New Jersey Historical Society’s collection must be made in writing. All orders must be prepaid. Because the Historical Society does not have a photographer on staff, please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.

If you intend to publish (in print or electronically) the photograph(s) that you are requesting, please state this fact. The Historical Society must authorize or decline such publication. A usage fee for any commercial use is added to the reproduction cost of the image(s). The New Jersey Historical Society reserves the right to determine the quality of the image(s) to be provided by the requester. Every image that is published from the collections of the Historical Society must be accompanied by the credit line, "From the Collections of The New Jersey Historical Society." Special requirements apply to electronic publication. No creation of negatives from collection items for publication or private use is permitted. All prices are subject to change without notice.

All waivers must be obtained in writing and are for one-time use ONLY. Any subsequent use of materials must be requested in writing from the Historical Society and additional fees may be charged.

Usage Fees – For Profit Use
