About this Item

Group of approximately 100 mugshots from 1896 New York City, showing men arrested for theft, burglary, swindling, forgery, pick-pocketing, and other non-violent crimes. Albumen prints mounted on cards (2 x 3.5 inches) all but 4 printed on the verso with the offender's identification number, name, alias, crime, age, date, residency, marital status, literacy level (reading/writing), physical description, occupation, where they're from, and remarks (usually listing tattoos or other special characteristics). Most also include the arresting officer's name, and most of them supply as much information as possible, rarely leaving a field blank. Condition varies. All are fragile, though some have stayed nicely intact, while others have tape repairs or heavily chipped photographs. A very rare format for mugshots. Bookseller Inventory # D11291
