A 2 7/8” x 1 1/8” with trompe l'oeil corner giving the illusion of the corner being flipped forward. Printed in black and white, as a chalk board. The card reads Arthur A. Waite, Children’s Chalk-talker? John 3:16 in the upper right corner. It is for Arthur Waite, who began his career as a mesmerist and medium and converted to Christianity around 1870 and deemed himself an artist evangelist.  He delivered evangelizing sermons to children using illustrated chalk-talks. .
