"This colorful miniature map of Illinois was produced by Arbuckle Coffee Company as an incentive to purchase their coffee. The area, population, major cities, towns, and rivers are identified. The surrounding views depict workers 'Watch Making' and 'Agricultural Machinery' " (Charles Edwin Puckett). "These Map Cards are from a delightful series issued in 1889 by the Arbuckle Bros. Coffee Company. The firm was founded by John and Charles Arbuckle of Pittsburgh and became the most famous coffee producer in the world. Their most famous promotional program involved issuing several series of small, colorful trading cards, one of which was included in every package of Arbuckle's Coffee. These series included cards with sports, food, historic scenes, and maps. The latter cards included not only a map, but also small pictures illustrating the peculiarities of the industries and scenery of the region depicted. The Arbuckle Map Cards proved so popular when first issued in 1889 that the firm came out with a second, updated series in 1915. This series is at once the most interesting, instructive, and artistic. Every card is a study in itself, and affords an object lesson for both young and old. These cards are a delight, containing informative maps as well as wonderful scenes of the area mapped" (The Philadelphia Print Shop).
