Uncommon to find in the hand-colored version. 8vo. 22.5 by 18 cm. Nine hand-colored plates of light narrative verse of card players avenging themselves on a Chinese cheat. Obviously politically incorrect as it plays into negative stereotypes and distrust of the Chinese who first came to the American West in numbers to build the transcontinental railroad. All plates are first printing except 6, which is the second state. BAL 7246. In this copy the separately issued cards have been mounted onto a light card stock and bound in full blue morocco. The binding is rubbed along the joints, somewhat dry on the spine and has other wear. Tight and clean within.
