    Description

    Advertising Sign for a Leather Company Lithographed by American Bank Note Company of New York Graphic and somewhat gruesome, the three vignettes picture the hunt, the kill and the tanning of the hides of these kangaroo. The scenes show Aborigines doing the work with signs behind them advertising "Richard Young 35 Spruce St. New York For Every Description of Fancy Leather." The paper litho by the American Bank Note Company has been linen backed quite some time ago. A light corner crease on the bottom left has been gracefully diminished and otherwise the piece looks to be near mint. Very unusual content for this early piece of social history and lithography. Unframed 17 1/2" x 23 3/4".
