A rare ephemeral item, 'The Margate & Ramsgate Rose' was printed by C. Adler in Hamburg as part of a series for Joseph Myers in London. One of many 'Roses' of important world cities, this example shows 25 steel engraved vignettes of Margate, Ramsgate, and Broadstairs printed on both sides of a delicate folding sheet. The die cut sheet folds neatly into a fan shape where the views are concealed and only the outer covers of a chromolithographed rose are visible.
Condition: Some surface dirt.
