Item #8424 [Broadside Advertisement] EXTRA! BOOTS, SHOES & RUBBERS FOR EVERYBODY. Kipp, Palmer's, firm.


Chicago: Pictorial Printing Co., c. 1880. Broadside. Item #8424

Broadside. 18" x 12." Printed in black on salmon-colored paper, on the recto only. Old folds and abundant wrinkling, nevertheless a fairly well preserved broadside with only one very short closed tear in the margin of one fold. Very good.

Laid out in three columns like a newspaper (Hence the header: "EXTRA!"), this is a wonderful advertisement for Kipp & Palmer's of Sing Sing, NY (now Ossining, NY). In comedic fashion, the firm advertises boots and shoes as well as custom work. We have been unable to locate information about this firm despite their claims that most everyone (excepting the double-amputee in the bottom left corner) buys boots from them.

Price: $150.00
