VICTORIAN SCRAPBOOK Album SCRAP – RARE Photographer CAT and Camera Full-Color Chromolithograph – Stock Trade Card Sample

RARE c1881 Victorian scrapbook album scrap – a photographer cat standing behind his tripod box camera taking a photograph - from a late 19th Century Saint Louis Victorian German American lady’s scrap and trade card album. Back is blank. This appears to be an advertising salesman’s stock advertising trade card sample.

Single-sided card measures 3-3/4" x 4-1/4".

LITHOGRAPH: The image is a chromolithograph - the printing of images by using a series of carefully registered tint stones – the most popular method for the original print-making during the last half of the nineteenth century. By the mid 1880's advertising printers were creating the most expensive and elaborate works of art in colour using the chromolithograph process. The name of the lithographer is not identified.

PHOTO NOTE: Small defects are exaggerated by the scanning process, and many are barely noticeable when viewed in person. The photos also distort the clarity of the images and sometimes the intensity of the colors. The muted "grainy" look is a distortion. The colors are often more vivid and the clarity greater when viewed in person.

CONDITION NOTE: Look carefully at the attached photo. Condition is accurately shown. This is in wonderful condition, but may not be perfect. It may have some damaged or flaked edges and small spots of surface color loss. However, the central image appears undamaged. The back may have glue stains or paper residue where it was affixed to a German woman’s trade card album. ALL DEFECTS ARE VISIBLE IN THE PHOTO.
