From Oak Knoll Press- "Charles Magnus (1826-1900) was one of the most prolific American printers of ephemera during the late nineteenth century. A native of Germany, he immigrated to New York City around 1850, where he enjoyed a long, creative career printing ephemera such as songsheets, illustrated stationery, birds eye views, maps, board games, puzzles, greeting cards, and rewards of merit."
