Lot of 8 Very Early Victorian Scripture Cards, 1870's

This is a group of 8 different religious cards, probably the sort that would have been given to Sunday School students as attendance rewards or rewards of merit. The largest measures 2 5/8" by 3 7/8", smallest is 1 1/2" by 2 1/4". Two have the dates 1873 and 1874 written on the back, so they probably all date from that time frame. Several also have the name "Euphemia R. Barnes" written on the back. One has the Lord's Prayer, one the Beatitudes, and one the first four Commandments. Others have shorter Scriptures such as Bear Ye One Anothers Burdens, Walk In Love, He Does Well Who Does His Best, and With A Sister's Love. Two have floral chromolithographs (cyclamen and violets), the others have very handsome borders, most with gold highlighting. This is the oldest batch of Sunday School cards I've had, dating to barely 10 years after the Civil War. (IMPORTANT: Please see "Condition", below, and be sure to view the pictures.)
