diablerie tissue #BK71 UNE TENTATION:
"Diableries" as a descriptive word refers to a number of series of tissues, issued in France between 1860 and 1875, with the general subject of the devil in varying poses. A good number of the cards used the devil as a poorly disguised social satire of Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, Napoleon III, Emperor of France from 1852 to 1870, commenting on one or another aspect of his rule.
There are a number of titled series of cards – BK is a series of 72 published by Block, and is a compilation of cards from other series. May et al. have titled other non-BK series as B, C, D, E, EH, and F.
There are small tears in the upper right of the left image, and mid-left of the right image. Neither interfere with viewing of the very good image. Someone attempted to repair tears in the back tissue. It does not interfere with viewing.
