A13 - Song Birds of the World - Allen & Ginter Tobacco
A13 - Song Birds of the World - Allen & Ginter Tobacco.
Souvenir Albums of this type were probably intended to replace
the individual tobacco cards in the series. They were purchased
with 75 to 100 coupons packed with cigarettes. This album was
issued circa 1890 with the images of the card series Song Birds
of the World (Burdick 23). Gorgeous illustrated pages including
forest scenes as well as the subject cards. Several lines from
poems by Milton, Tennyson, Longfellow and others also appear on
the album pages. Far scarcer than the individual cards. Area of
cover loss at upper and lower left. Cover fold and tape. Tape
on back cover. Click to view rear cover
(Stock number a13album-316) $165.00 SOLD
