261.   The World Visualized: Box of 135 Underwood & Underwood views from the scarce 1000 view set

sold to schools.  These are the views with the "S" prefix in the upper right corner.  The views were often drawn from stocks of existing sets and will have numbers for those sets also either in the top center or before the stock number at bottom.  Complete sets are extremely uncommon having been broken up years ago or badly worn out by use in schools.  Here is a box full of miscellaneous views in very nice condition.  A wide variety of subjects from as low as S2 (10740) State House, Boston to a high of S973(3915) girls picking tea, Japan.  Many better subjects including the Singer Building under construction in New York City; New Jersey Ferry loaded with passengers; women working in Paterson, NJ mill; train on Horseshoe Curve; Pres. Wilson and Cabinet; Blacks on turpentine farm, N.C.; child labor in Columbia, S.C. mill, etc., gray mounts with rich sepia prints.  The box is labeled for views 621-804.  Views overall are excellent, box is solid (not a book box) but rubbed/slight worn.
