Engraved mid-19th century advertising poster depicting a mid-Victorian farming product. Targeted to farmers, this advertisement is rife with testimonials (real or otherwise), and includes a long list of farmers and farms that use the product. Includes a list of merchants at the bottom, as well as the area in which they operated.
Nice looking example, pleasing age patina, any minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. Document is printed on thin paper, and thus is quite fragile although it has survived in clean and well preserved condition.
