by E. Richard McKinstry
Charles Magnus (1826-1900) was one of the most prolific American printers of ephemera during the late nineteenth century. He enjoyed a long, creative career printing ephemera such as songsheets, illustrated stationery, bird's eye views, maps, board games, puzzles, greeting cards, and rewards of merit. Given the range of his printing and publishing efforts, it is likely that many households of the time would have had something with his name on it.
