Product Description:

This edition of The Premium Game of Logomachy or War of Words was published in 1889 by McLoughlin Brothers of New York. Considered the “Best New Parlor Game” of its time, Logomachy received the “Highest Premium (Silver Medal)," awarded by the Cincinnati Industrial Exposition.

For a card game that is 125 years old, this item is in wonderful antique condition. The game box shows only shelf wear along its edges. The bottom of the game box does show some discoloration due to moisture. It also has hand-written numerals in one of its corners.

The game cards are in great condition, with graphics as vibrant as when they were first produced. One card, however, is missing from the complete set of 72 cards. The game rules do show some sign of discoloration.

Ephemera accompanying this card game include a torn calendar page from the Germania Life Insurance Company of the City of New York and a torn-in-half notepad page advertising the New Tontine Hotel and Café of New Haven, Connecticut. Aging of these “surprise” items indicates that they come from the same era as the game itself, especially since the notepad page has a hand-written date of “Feb. Sat. 8 1902.” Please review all photos for this product.

This 125-year-old card game with added provenance is a rare find for the collector of vintage toys and games. This would also make for a wonderful gift for a teacher of language or graphic arts.

Note: As part of our Fifth Anniversary Celebration, purchase of the 1889 Logomachy: War of Words comes with a free $50 Dogbotz Boneyard gift certificate, which can be redeemed during a future purchase at our online store. The expiration date of the gift certificate is one year after purchase of this item.
