PRETTY YOUNG WOMAN RECLINING ON A COUCH AND READING A “FORBIDDEN BOOK” (RISQUE)

This vintage real photo postcard features a pretty young woman reclining on a couch and reading a book. The caption on the card indicates that she is reading a “Forbidden Book”. She is likely reading a racy novel. This postcard is a bit risque for it’s era (c. 1905). This postcard was published by Paul Fink (Germany) as part of a series (No. 5009/3). He was a fine art printer that operated between 1899 and 1905. The stamp box of this postcard has an interesting story. “NBC” (Neue Bromsilber Convention) was a price cartel established in 1909 that continued until the 1930’s. The purpose of the cartel was to ensure that the minimum price charged for postcards was kept at a sufficiently profitable level. (SOLD)
