[Broadside on cloth, supplied title]: Shoe Shine Boys Playing at Dice
no publisher, 1900. Near Fine. Unbound. Broadside printed in color on cloth, possibly a chromoxylographic process. Measuring 22.5" x 22.5". Very slight wear at extremities, faint old folds (largely now flattened out), slight age-wear but still near fine. The cloth is lightly tipped at the top onto foam core backing. Artist's depiction of two black boys, one with a shine box, along with one white boy, play craps for pennies on the sidewalk, to their evident delight. No place of publication, but clearly American and possibly from New York; no publication information, and no obvious artist's mark, what must certainly be a rare survivor. We could find no other copy of this image.
Bookseller: Between the Covers (betweenthecoversrarebooks) [Gloucester City, New Jersey, United States]
