Price: $135.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Fine


An ornate dance card decorated with lace, silk ribbon and a chromolithographic die-cut centerpiece and gilt borders on the front cover. The style is very much akin to Valentine's Cards of the period. Within is a four page program listing dances and Supper to be served from 11 to 2 and on the back, the names of officers of the association, all now obscure personages. The Thistle Benevolent Association, which obviously goes back to 1832, was incorporated in 1851 to provide assistance to "the deserving poor". The card is in a fine state of preservation, with the requisite string also intact. The only very minor issue is a small spot in which the rear endpaper is lost.
