1873 from 1866
This card showing 45 performers represented by the American Literary
Bureau was issued in 1873 prior to Wilkie Collins's visit to the USA to
read from his work. After a short time Collins fell out with the Bureau
and got another agent but it still claimed to represent him. Collins,
No.30, is in the 5th row three in from the left. The image is clearly
taken from the 1866 portrait by Elliott and Fry.
