A NEW ERA IN POST CARD COLLECTING. The cult of Postcard collecting has now reached a stage sufficiently advanced to warrant the intro- duction into this popular branch of art of the system now in vogue for many years past, in the issuing of a limited number of proofs of engravings, photogravures, and other high-class art publications. A large number of such proofs originally published at prices ranging from R,3 3s to o£10 10s per copy have advanced in price to twenty, fifty, and a hundred guineas and more, and even at such enormously increased prices collectors are loth to part with their treasures. The intro- duction of this system of issuing in future a separate small proof edition of the more important of the new postcard publications of Messrs Raphael Tuck and Company, London, as they appear from time to time, will no doubt be hailed as a boon by all collectors, who will thus be in a position to incorporate in their collections authentic first copies of the postcards the firm named as they are struck off the plates. Only 1,000 copies of such proofs of each selected design will be issued, and as these will become distributed among the numberless thousands of postcard collectors all the world over, it follows that once each limited edition of proofs is placed, the price must necessarily advance rapidly. Twelve sets of proof postcards are in course of preparation, every set being issued in a snull artistic portfolio. Any ,t or sets can be ordered, for delivery when Mshed, from any bookseller, stationer, or art hroughout the world.
