About this Item

Approximately 1100 pieces, both loose and in four albums. Most pieces pasted into albums. Albums are quarto and folio in size. Largest album lacking spine and front board; spine deteriorated on second album, leaves loose in both. Some light wear to leaves in all four albums, some heavier than others. Overall, the individual pieces are in very good condition. A Large Collection of American Chromolithographic Ephemera Large group of primarily American trade cards, advertisements, and other ephemeral printed items, most printed in chromolithographic full color. The collection spans a variety of printing firms, in various locales, including Boston, New York, New Bedford, Philadelphia, Buffalo, and others. In addition to chromos of flowers and other ornamental scenes, there are trade cards advertising a wide variety of products: corsets, soap, thread, medicines and remedies, early appliances and household goods, shoes, furniture, dry goods, cigars, and many more. Most of the advertisements and trade cards are aimed at a female audience, relying on the desires of the burgeoning Victorian middle class. Some show African Americans in extreme caricatures, notably a series of cards for cigars. A significant archive of ephemeral items, neatly collected and grouped. Bookseller Inventory # 26624
