THE MANSION OF HAPPINESS
AN INSTRUCTIVE MORAL AND ENTERTAINING AMUSEMENT

Published by: D. P. Ives, Boston and S. B. Ives, Salem, Mass.
Engraved by: Taylor and Adams, Boston 1864

This original hand colored antique game board is framed in a black matte frame measuring 19 7/8 inches x 16 1/2 inches with a protective glass covering. The game has the original leather closure.

This rare and historically important game board is considered to be the first commercially published game board in the US. The game was made for young adults as a lesson in moral conduct. Christian deeds and virtue were assurances of success and happiness. The players move along the road to eternal happiness.

Very good condition as shown in the photos for this important and rare piece. Colors are still very bright. Displays beautifully, a work of classic lithographed mid 19th century art.
