New in my vintage library is a 1976 issue of a large-format catalog of American poster advertising from 19 century that provides a unique view of nineteenth-century business and merchandising. The book features a curated selection from the collection of Bella Clara Landauer (1874 – 1960) — a notable collector of ephemera, sheet music, and manufacturing trade cards who also became a self-taught historian of commercial art and printing.
