AN EXTREMELY RARE CARTE-DE-VISITE TITLED BENEATH THE IMAGE "L'AMIRAL TOM POUCE." IT IS IN PERIOD INK, AND I DO NOT KNOW WHO WROTE IT, OR IF IT MIGHT BE AN AUTOGRAPH. THAT TRANSLATES TO ADMIRAL TOM THUMB, BUT I AM NOT SURE IF THAT IS HIM. WHOEVER HE IS, HE SURE IS LITTLE! HE STANDS NEXT TO A CHAIR WHICH TOWERS ABOVE HIM. A GREAT CIRCUS-RELATED PHOTOGRAPH.

In mint condition, two large areas of grey paper remnants on verso from previously being glued to something, I know not what. It bears the imprint of J. May of Halle(?) 1860's.

PLEASE SEE THE ADDITIONAL RARE CDV'S BEING OFFERED. IF ANYTHING, I UNDER-DESCRIBE THE EXCELLENCE OF CONDITION! YOU CAN BE CERTAIN IF I SAY EXCELLENT OR MINT, IT TRULY IS!

Please see my additional listings for more unusual and uncommon tintypes, stereoviews, CDV's, and albumen and silver prints as well as additional types of photographs.
