About this Item

6 cards. 3 7/16" W x 5 7/16" H A complete set of six postcards with colored illustrations after "Phiz" from "Pickwick Papers" by Charles Dickens. These illustrious illustrations speak for themselves, for Dickens and for "Phiz". They comprise Set #6912 of "Oilette" cards by Raphael Tuck & Sons, complete with the proper tan envelope printed in red. Raphael Tuck & Sons, of London, was a prominent publisher of art reproductions from 1866 and early modern postcards, beginning with a view of Mt. Snowden (Wales) in 1894 and a first numbered series of London views in 1899. The early printing by chromolithography with multiple stones was done in Germany. They used embossed and hand-cut dies. Designated Art Publishers to the Queen by Victoria in a royal warrant of 1893, their plant was destroyed in the London Blitz in 1940 during World War II. Tuck led the campaign for a standard full-size (3.5" x 5.5") card in 1899 and for the split-back card (separate address and message sections) in 1902. Postcards Near Fine. Cracking of envelope along folds of flap and one edge with mild wear at corners. Mild soiling of envelope. Else, Very Good. The cards are housed in the original printed envelope.
