How wonderful can it get! I love this antique set of postcard titled " Le Batteleur" which translates to " The Magician". I love the dream like hazy feeling the hand tinted colors give to the real black and white photographs.The hand tinting was done at the time of publishing and not just recently colored in as so many of the antique postcards are being done today.They were published ( and are signed ) by French photographer , Henri Manuel ( 1874- 1947). The Manuel Photography Studio opened in Paris in 1900. the original series contained 10 cards and alas this is only a set of 8,missing #'s 3 & 8. I have searched for years for the other two and have had no luck.In fact I have never even seen another single one like any of these.They are in remarkable condition and simply BEAUTIFUL! Surly a rare addition to any serious collector.
