Rare stationer's sample programme or dance card cover lithographed with finely-drawn artist's panorama of American Civil War's Union Army infantry troops on the march, on front and back cover. Appears to be a sample program cover for a G. A. R. event. Stationary salesman's sample is hand-stamped in light blue ink with the lithographer's or stationary business's logo, the sample's stock no. 2792, and the price per 100. No. 2792 is also printed on the center of the lower margin. Found in an album of vintage trade cards, but the exact age is uncertain. Salesman's sample on heavily textured paper stock, with serrated edges and the center line marked for folding. Lithographer unknown. Measures 6" x 6" unfolded.
CONDITION: Near mint condition. No folds, tears, or soiling. One of the serrations on the lower border appears deeper than the others
