The Story:

Charles Henry Taylor was interested in any print, book or piece of ephemera printed lithographically, not just prints by well-known firms. Charles H. Crosby printed ephemera, children’s books, and advertising prints. He experimented with color printing in the early 1870s, using multiple stones to print four- and five-color prints, including this example of an advertisement for a metal dealer.
