Rare Antique 1800s Ephemera French Exchange Student Philadelphia 1870 1890 19th For Sale
Great leather school pouch with all books this student would have used on a daily basis for the school year. Her name is one the leather pouch twice in ink, and also on almost every single book and letter. She has french and english literature books, letters, notes, a cabinet card (possibly boyfriend) book marks, and way way more. Some books are in better shape than others, all are written in and used and most are all in english. I did research and also found trade cards from her fathers business inside of the books ( they are not included) . They moved from France in the late 1860's and he started a scouring and steaming business in Philadelphia. This is a great lot and everything is connected to one young girl, I've never seen a collection like this all together before from over 130 years ago.
