I am a private Collector from Rome, Italy and I have decided to sell some of my items using this Auction.
It is offered a rare, large, original, period advertising broadside printed circa 1850s, advertising the itinerant daguerreotypist photographer E. S. Hayden. It measures approximately 10 x 12 inches in size (30x25 cm). This is an original broadside, printed on a single large sheet and intended for posting on walls, trees, etc.. Broadside is unused, blanks were left in the printed text for filling in the current location by hand before posting. A fine example of 19th century advertsing printing, will look beautiful in an old frame. A group of these was discovered about 10 years ago, perhaps leftovers at the printers or never used by Hayden, and I was happy to acquire a group at that time from the person who found them.
CONDITION: Overall excellent, some normal age darkening or "patina," a light stain bottom right corner and minor wear at edges - see scan. No folds or other damage.
The complete text of the broadside reads:
