Description: (OPTICAL ILLUSION.) Complete set of Part 1 and Part 2 of Prang''s "Magic Cards." Together 24 lithographed cards, two folding letterpress instructional keys, partial original printed envelope wrapper. 4 1/4x2 1/2 inches; all very clean with only the occasional minor spot of foxing. Boston: L. Prang & Co., 1865

Notes: Prang''s skilled lithographic artists combine multiple images within one, revealing cleverly concealed scenes if looked upon in the right way. Extremely rare to find both complete parts of these curious and charming picture cards together with original descriptive booklets, especially in the present condition.
