The famous German chemist, Justus von Liebig invented process that allowed the production of a meat extract in the form of a paste or boullion cubes. An English firm decided to start the production of the meat extract in 1850 and named itself (Liebig’s Extract of Meat Company) and the product after its inventor. Soon the “Liebig Fleischextrakt” (meat extract) was sold worldwide.
Around 1850, the company started to publish chromolithograph trade cards. These collectors’ cards were extremely popular, and by 1975 they had published more than 11,000 different types of cards on an enormous variety of subjects. Sets were made of either 6 or 12 cards on a theme.
We have reproduced a delightful set of 6 cards featuring popular magic tricks, with diagrams of how the tricks are done. We offer 2 each of the 6 designs on blank greeting cards, plus 12 envelopes, in a deluxe box.
