Two different French advertising trade cards featuring colorful illustrations of Johannes Gutenberg

Nimes and Paris: circa 1900. Unbound. Two colorful Gutenberg trade cards. One measures 4.5” x 3.5”; the other, 4.25” x 2.5”. Both are in nice shape. One has faint mounting ghosts on the reverse where it had likely been attached to a scrapbook page. Very good. Item #009137

The small card advertises Chocolat Guerin-Boutron of Paris and is part of that company’s Les Bienfaiteurs de L’humanite series. The larger card was produced by Scipion Coulon, a men’s tailor in Nimes that specialized in hats, hosiery, colognes, and gloves.
