Lot 16    

CDV's of The Fisherman for Heidelberg College,
2002 Americana & Decorative Arts. November 20.
lot of 4. Each of Henry Leonard, a 19th century fund-raiser for this small Ohio liberal arts college. Three with a humorous tale imprinted on verso, describing Leonard's antics. Wish my college sent these rather than Visa applications!

All clean, but as typical for this series, a hint light. Have never seen any with rich tonality.
