Room 26 Cabinet of Curiosities

Transparency

Posted in Beinecke Library, General Modern Collection by beineckepoetry on October 10, 2011

Selected images from a set of transparent playing cards.
When held to a light source, an image with a proverb can be seen.

Unknown maker, but likely US, circa 1870.
