Rysdyk's Hambletonian [real photo postcard]
N.p. No stated publisher, n.d. [ca. 1920s-40s]. No stated edition. Unbound. Reproduces one of the mid-19th-century lithographs showing William Rysdyk and his great trotting sire Hambletonian. Similar to but not the same as the Henry C. Eno or Currier & Ives compositions. Here the hay rack is on the left, not the right, and there are other differences.. Long light crease across upper left, visible only in raking light. A few shallow indentastions, also visible only in raking light. Very good. Item #30673
