Abstract:
A collection of English engraved advertisements, trade cards, invitations to society functions, and bookplates probably compiled around 1758 by F. [ or T.?] Legge of St. James's Market and mounted in an album, with five later items laid-in. In some cases the collector has recorded on the versos the circumstances in which he acquired a card. The trade cards include a wide range of London businesses: apothecaries and druggists; booksellers; bookbinders and related trades of leather gilder and case makers; brush makers; boot and shoes makers; cabinet and chair makers; cards and paper goods providers; chimney sweeps; clock and watch makers; coach maker; confectioners; sellers of combs and cutlery; coopers; dentists; distillers; drapers; dyers; engravers; fan makers; figure makers; furriers; glassmakers; goldsmiths; grocers; gun makers; hairdressers; hatters and hosiers; ironmongers; jewelers and brokers; mercers; milliners; makers of musical instruments; oil men; paper makers and paper hangers; pewterers; picture framers; plumbers; printsellers; saddlers; makers of scales; stationers; tea merchants; tin-workers; snuffman and tobacconists; tool makers; toy makers and sellers; trunk makers; turners; undertakers; upholsterers; sundries. In addition to intact copies of cards, the album includes details of decorative elements trimmed from other copies or other cards and advertisements as well as decorative and armorial bookplates.
