    Complete Set of 1898 Comic, Full-color Stereoptic Cards, 1-100 A marvelous, full, brilliant color set of real photo "Comic" stereoptic cards. Don't let this title mislead you: this gorgeous set of humorous situations covers the whole gamut and genre of American life in the late 1890s. From children playing with firecrackers; African American children in funny situations; romance; impossibly cute animal pictures; the Fourth of July; and many comical situations between adults and children, wives and lovers, etc. This is a complete one hundred card set; the back and front of each card carries individual series number and each card has its own title of the comic episode and a full description on the reverse of the card. Set is copyrighted "1898 by T. W. Ingersoll." Cards with faint, slight edge wear; overall condition is fine to very fine to near mint. Comes with the original professionally repaired black storage box, with faint gold-stamped "COMIC SERIES" across the top. It is extremely difficult to find (and let alone acquire) a complete original stereoptic card set such as this; especially a set issued in full color! Many individual cards (like this) sell for as much as $10 to $15 each -- or more. A choice and rare complete set.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
