J.H. White & Co., Manufacturers of School Bags, Razor Strops and Bibs. North East, MD. Price List of Razors. [opening lines of broadside]


An ephemeral price list illustrated with nine engravings that advertise razor strops made by North East, Maryland company. An 1878 Maryland directory noted the firm had removed from Philadelphia to North East and could “produce and ship to all points of the country immense quantities of patent razor strops, spectacle and eyeglass cases.”

Illustrated 19th century American broadsides devoted to barbering —whether for self-care at home or in a barbershop— are scarce, especially of any notable size. One example located in the Jay T. Last Collection.
