"You can fool some of the people all of the time" / Ehrhart.
Illustration shows a vignette cartoon with John A. Dowie as a wizard at center offering salvation and other products to gullible customers. The surrounding vignettes show various types of "people", such as "The working people", downtrodden and depressed, who are tricked into following the "Walking Delegate", his pockets overflowing with money, and "The get-rich-quick people" who anxiously purchase bogus stocks and securities. There are those who have their palms read and those who believe they can build their own homes, as well as those who show off their castles with a huge "Mortage".

Alois Senefelder, the inventor of lithography, introduced the subject of colored lithography in 1818. Printers in other countries, such as France and England, were also started producing color prints. The first American chromolithograph—a portrait of Reverend F. W. P. Greenwood—was created by William Sharp in 1840. Chromolithographs became so popular in American culture that the era has been labeled as "chromo civilization". During the Victorian times, chromolithographs populated children's and fine arts publications, as well as advertising art, in trade cards, labels, and posters. They were also used for advertisements, popular prints, and medical or scientific books.
