Description:

A book containing 253 chromolithographic postcards featuring popes beginning with St. Peter through Pius X. The postcards are inserted into the book three to a page and the colors are dramatic and vibrant. The cards indicate where the pope was born, what years they held the papacy and where they died (or are buried?). Some of the images are quite dramatic. Pope Pontian (Ponzianus), #245 in the card sequence who served from 230 to 235 has an image of a someone about to throw a dagger into his back as he is praying, likely a reference to the fact that he was arrested while serving and sentenced to death.
