“Got a Bite.” [Novelty carte de visite (CDV) photo.]

Boston: [publisher illegible], 1864. First edition. Original photograph from a drawing, approx. 3.5 x 2.38 inches on a slightly larger printed mount. Some light wear and soil; in very good condition. Item #18094

A lively and moderately salacious CDV image of a woman angler who has caught her skirt on her back-cast, exposing her stockinged legs. The imprint on the mount obscured by the mounted image but with a copyright date legible; the backstamp lightly erased and an early ink autograph post office box address (a shift to evade Comstock?) added.

Price: $100.00
