Catalogs, design books, and advertisements during the Victorian-era are an invaluable source of information. Samuel Clarke was a prolific advertiser for his fairy lamp and fairy lights. His ads appeared in nearly all the major publications of the time and many were in full color. The advertisements were often full page and the illustrations were very precise and detailed leaving nothing to the imagination
Following is a collection of advertisements arranged in chronological order. Hopefully, by putting the advertisements in chronological order will lead to new discoveries of how they were introduced and marketed. The collection will not only include Clarke's advertisements but those of his competitors.
