CHROMOLITHOGRAPHED TRADE CARD "BOOKLET" of mostly BUCKEYE Horticultural and Agricultural Products.

Springfield, Ohio: (Mast, Foos & Co.) n.d.. An amusing late 19th century American set of square advertising cards held together by a grommet at the upper right corners enabling the reader to go through an illustrated "story". In a progression from "Admiration" through "Flirtation," "Tribulation" to "Termination," a little outdoor garden romance takes place in the four scenes with a lady mowing a lawn attracting a gentleman pumping water (with a wind turbine in the background) and ending up with the two embracing at a decorative iron gate. On the "versos" of the chromolithographed scenes are advertisements for Mast, Foos & Co.'s wind engine Buckeye iron fence, Buckeye junior lawnmower, and Buckeye force pump. Get out there and create your garden with the latest enhancements and equipment! Four cards, 6.2 x 6.2 cm each, held together by a grommet at upper right corner.

One side of each of the four cards is printed with a chromolithographed illustration; the "verso" is lithographed with advertising text in black, bearing the imprint "Coback & Co. Lith. Buffalo, N.Y." In very good condition.
