An Original Antique two-fold sheet of Mid-Victorian Notepaper - Unused/Not written on - with a large black and white vignette steel engraved view of St Peter's Church, Carmarthen, as a 'Header'. No date shown, but the H. White is known to be Hannah White & Sons, Printers, Booksellers, and Stationers. Hannah was working from c. 1801 to 1860. The first and last pages have some lightish edge discolourations/stains and creasing on the unused, blank sections, but not affecting the image, which is a clean, bright image depicting the Church of St Peters and some adjacent houses, with a coach and horses in front, and some passers by and a dog. The blank unused centre-fold is clean. It was drawn by a 'C. W' - perhaps one of the 'White' family? A charming engraving. As a Stationer such notepaper would have been a 'stock in trade' for the firm, and were often provided to Hotels for their guests, much as headed noetepaper is provided for some hotel rooms nowadays. The Notepaper measures 9.0" x 7.3" (22.7cm x 18.6cm) and the large vignette image is c. 5.7" x 6.0" (14 cm x 15 cm) almost an oval. Quite Scarce ephemera. Great for Framing/gift. See Images. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
