Boston: circa 1910. A group of 19 collaged puzzles, with answers, housed in a restored box. (Item ID: 3290)
Each puzzle is on a 6 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch black board and is made up of pictorial items cut from magazines and books and pasted to the board. On the verso of each board is a printed number. The cards are housed in a modern box (the original box was badly broken) with the original lid stating "Literary Rebus." Inside the box is an envelope with a drawing of a "Key" containing a slip answering the nineteen rebuses, each of which is the title of a book.
