American Bank Note Company (ABNCo) The World in a Pocket Book Page

The 1849 edition of this publication, which matches the date on the bottom of this plate, was essentially a world almanac and could be had in a hardcover edition of 203-pages and published by George S. Appleton. The title appears above an angel (Fame?) blowing trumpet with flags, globe and eagle amidst clouds. Below is the date along with Appleton’s name and address. The approximately 5-1/2 x 7-1/2 inch steel plate has many fine hairlines and pre-dates the formation of the American Bank Note Company (1858). Included is the original paper envelope with notations and image affixed. The mark of JB Keim Philadelphia is on the reverse.
